“I can confirm Aston Villa made an enquiry,” said Inter starlet Philippe Coutinho’s agent.
The Brazilian spent last season on loan at Espanyol and has struggled to get into the first team under Andrea Stramaccioni.
“I can confirm Aston Villa made an enquiry for Coutinho,” agent Cacau Barbosa told FC Inter News.
“They want him, but with all due respect for the proposal made to Philippe, at this moment there is still nothing concrete to suggest an exit from Inter.”
The 20-year-old who can play in midfield or attack grew up in the Vasco da Gama youth academy and has been at San Siro since 2010.
