Aston Villa eye Coutinho

Aston Villa eye Coutinho

Eurosport informs that Aston Villa have made a formal enquiry as regards the transfer fee of Inter Milan highly-rated attacking midfielder Philippe Coutinho.

Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert is said to be admiring the 20-year-old Brazilian’s abilities, and made Coutinho’s transfer a priority of Villans’ January transfer campaign.

Coutinho has spent part of the last season on loan at Espanyol and impressed the fans and observers with a string of decent performances. However since returning to Inter Milan he has made just three first-team starts.

Coutinho’s agent admitted Aston Villa’s interest but stated that the official proposal has not yet been made. Villans are said to be interested to sign Coutinho on loan until the end of the season with a option of buying him in future.
