The Brazilian is out of favour at the Catalan club under new boss Xavi Hernandez.
According to Sky Sports News reporter Kaveh Solhekol, there are two Premier League clubs in for Coutinho.
One of those teams is not Liverpool, who have no interest in their former player.
"He was going to be making his decision before tomorrow afternoon. There have been lots of reports about Aston Villa being interested in signing him.
"Steven Gerrard was asked about it today and he didn't really give much away. He said I don't want to talk about a player who belongs to Barcelona at the moment.
"Speaking to people on the player's side of the deal my feeling about this is that he would be interested in joining Aston Villa.
"He feels that Aston Villa are an up and coming club. Steven Gerrard, Christian Purslow and the owners have big plans.
"He feels if he was at Aston Villa and playing regularly he could help them get up the table and maybe get into Europe.
"Villa are not giving anything away."
