Liverpool edge closer to Inter Milan agreement for Coutinho

Liverpool are pushing hard to close a deal for Inter Milan midfielder Philippe Coutinho.

The Sun says the Kop’s first £8million offer for the Inter Milan midfielder was rejected.

Now the Merseysiders have restructured the deal to include £6m up front and the rest in stages — the original down payment would have been far lower.

Italian reports suggested Southampton were set to splash £10m on the 20-year-old Brazilian.
