Moratti: Move may be great for Coutinho

Published Add your comment

Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti believes a move to the Barclays Premier League would represent a "great opportunity" for Philippe Coutinho.

Press Association Sport understands Liverpool have agreed an £8.5million fee with Inter for their Brazilian playmaker, who has also reportedly attracted interest from Southampton. Coutinho, 20, is expected to travel to Liverpool early this week to complete a medical and other formalities, and he goes with Moratti's blessing.

Moratti told "There are opportunities there to be seized. Sometimes certain players need the chance to play more. And that's why I think this could be a great opportunity for Coutinho, and a deal that could go very well for us too."
