Anfield side land Inter Milan starlet.
The Daily Mail today report that Brazilian youngster Philippe Coutinho is to complete his deal to sign for Liverpool and posed with the club for good measure.
The Inter Milan man will become Liverpool’s second signing of the summer with Brendan Rodgers having brought in Chelsea forward Daniel Sturridge early in the month.
Coutinho is said to have had his medical yesterday and was to meet with club officials to iron out his contract before the club then make a work permit application.
The 20 year old was once dubbed the ‘Next Kaka’ and is a player who would considered the next superstar of South American football, but to be fair the former Vasca da Gama playmaker has struggled to live up to expectations over the course of the past couple of seasons.
Brendan Rodgers has reportedly been scouting the San Siro youngster, who has become something of a bit-part player under boss Andrea Stramaccioni this term.
Last season Coutinho experienced some success whilst on loan at La Liga side Espanyol, netting five goals 16 appearances for the Barcelona based side.
