Coutinho on Atletico radar

Sunday People is reporting that Atletico Madrid are planning an ambitious swoop for Liverpool starlet Philippe Coutinho.

Los Colchoneros enquired about the player’s availability in the summer, but their approach was swiftly rejected by the Reds.

Nevertheless, they are prepared to reignite their interest in the player and are believed to be readying an official offer for the midfielder’s services.

Atletico have enjoyed a remarkable start to the new La Liga campaign, with last night’s victory over Real Madrid at Santiago Bernabeu their seventh triumph in a row.

Los Colchoneros are hoping to further reinforce the squad next summer, but prizing Coutinho away from Anfield is likely to prove a very difficult task.

The Brazilian has largely impressed since joining from Inter and is regarded as a key player in Brendan Rodgers’ side.

Coutinho, 21, has managed no less than 3 goals and 5 assists in 13 Premier League matches during his first season at the club.
