Premier League clubs court Coutinho

Inter talent Philippe Coutinho is said to be attracting several January offers from the Premier League, including Aston Villa and Southampton.

The 20-year-old Brazilian spent some of last season on loan in Spain with Espanyol, but has again failed to break into the Nerazzurri first XI.

According to the Corriere dello Sport, Coutinho could be off on his travels again and this time towards England.

Aston Villa are in dire straits at the moment and need a creative figure to reinforce the ranks.

Southampton are also said to be showing an interest in Coutinho after their negotiations for Cagliari defender Davide Astori.
