Liverpool Up Coutinho Bid

The man looks good in Red
After having a low-ball bid in the region of £5mil kicked back by Inter Milan for promising youngster Philippe Coutinho, word has come across the News Desk that Liverpool have come back with an improved offer that’s closer to the price the cash strapped Nerazzurri have been looking for.

Conflicting reports have Southampton going in hard with a bid of £10.2mil as the Saints look to hijack the move, but with Merseyside thought to be the preferred destination for the versatile midfielder, an upgraded bid of £7.6mil from Brendan Rodgers could be just enough to prise the Brazilian away from Milan. Moving to a side that’s in the midst of a heated relegation scrap could make for a number of sleepless nights; though the Reds are hardly in an enviable position right now, a young squad that’s on the up could prove to be tempting for the 20 year old as talks over his future continue.

    Good? Not good-for-nothing I hope. I am somewhat concerned because you uttered the very same words when LFC signed the donkey (Carroll), the meek lamb (Henderson), the toothless bulldog (Cole) and the pair of mules (Adam & Downing).

    Abit harsh on Henderson,downing, when they’ve pulled there socks up this year got goals and assists and who are coming good. Countinho will be the same, good with his feet, likes dribberling with the ball…. Also can get goals and he only 20!

    Bit behind the times aren’t we? Downing is now on the up you say Coutinho scores goals but his stats aren’t that much different from Downing!

    You are still talking about last season! 2 of those have shown they are capable of more.

    Some on here still think its last season! We have started scoring goals regular and with Sturridge, Suarez we are causing team problems and may be Coutinho could play with those 2 in the 3 he has played on the left for teams.
