Atletico Madrid made an attempt to sign Philippe Coutinho from Liverpool over the summer.

The People says Atletico will revive their interest in Liverpool's Coutinho if they can qualify for the Champions League's knockout stages.

The Spaniards made tentative enquiries about the Brazil midfielder in the summer, but their interest was quickly rebuffed by the Anfield giants.

However, that will not stop them returning with an offer when the transfer window reopens in the new year if they find themselves in need of a new playmaker.
