Reports are emerging from Italy that Inter have agreed a €13m transfer fee with Liverpool for Philippe Coutinho.
The Reds have made their interest clear for some time and were in a bidding war with Southampton.
However, Liverpool were more determined and flew directors over to discuss the matter with Inter in person.
According to Sky Sport Italia, a deal has been reached for €13m – around £11m.
The transfer is imminent for the 20-year-old, even though Liverpool must secure a work permit first.
Inter will then immediately fly over to Brazil in order to reinvest that money in Corinthians midfielder Paulinho, who would be available for €20m.
Coutinho showed flashes of real talent during his time at San Siro, but struggled for consistency and suffered from a series of injuries.
There were also concerns among fans and pundits over his mental strength at the highest level.
