Inter to loan out Coutinho?

Inter are considering sending Philippe Coutinho out on loan to get experience next season, according to Sky Italia.

The 18-year-old Brazil international playmaker started the season strongly, but is no longer guaranteed first team football.

Inter are planning to sign Fiorentina midfielder Riccardo Montolivo this summer and if that were to happen competition for places would only increase.

The latest reports claim Coutinho could be used as a bargaining chip in negotiations with Fiorentina for Montolivo.

Inter hope Coutinho will benefit from a spell on loan, much like Davide Santon has done at Cesena since January.
