There are reports that Inter midfielder Philippe Coutinho will fly to England tonight in order to undergo a medical with Liverpool.
President Massimo Moratti confirmed this evening that the transfer, worth an expected €12m, was at a very advanced stage.
“There are opportunities to be taken and at times players can have the chance to get more playing time.
“This is why I think it can be a great opportunity for Coutinho and a deal that could go well for us too,” Moratti told Sky Sport Italia.
Italian media suggest the 20-year-old Brazilian could fly out to England this evening in order to undergo his Liverpool medical tomorrow morning.
Inter are eager to get the deal done as quickly as possible, so they can reinvest with a €20m offer for Corinthians star Paulinho.
