Liverpool signs Coutinho from Inter Milan

Brazil playmaker Philippe Coutinho has joined Liverpool from

Inter Milan.

The 20-year-old Coutinho was signed in a deal worth around ?10

million ($13.5 million) on Wednesday, a day before the January

transfer window closes.

He is Liverpool’s second arrival this month following the

signing of England striker Daniel Sturridge from Chelsea for 12

million pounds (about $19 million).

Coutinho says Liverpool ”are the club that have been interested

in me and that have showed this interest so I know they believe in

me and my football.”

His contract was only described as ”long term” by

Liverpool.
