Liverpool signing Luis Alberto is happy to be compared with Philippe Coutinho.

Shortly after inking his deal at Liverpool, manager Brendan Rodgers drew parallels between his arrival and that of Coutinho in January.

"I know Philippe mostly from his time playing for Espanyol in the Spanish League," said Alberto to liverpoolfc.com/.

"He's been playing at the top level. I can watch and learn from him - we're the same age, both young, we both want to progress and give everything and bust a gut to make sure we succeed."
