Coutinho hopeful of Inter stay

Liverpool target Philipe Coutinho insists he is hoping to stay at Inter Milan for the remainder of the season, despite speculation that the Premier League side have made a formal offer for the Brazilian.

Coutinho has been tipped for Liverpool greatness.
Coutinho insists he is happy at Inter Milan

Coutinho, 20, has been strongly linked with a move to Anfield this month and widespread newspaper reports suggest Brendan Rodgers is hoping to recruit the midfielder in time for Liverpool's FA Cup trip to Oldham on Sunday.

It is believed Inter rejected a £6 million bid for Coutinho last week, but negotiations between the two clubs resumed on Monday, although the youngster claims he is happy in the Serie A.

"I don't feel that I'm on my way out," Coutinho told Sky Sport 24. "I hope to stay at Inter. I feel the coach and the club trust me. Now I'm focused only on doing my best in my job and getting back on the field soon.

"The offer from Liverpool? I’m happy for all these requests because it means that people like the work I’m doing, but I believe Inter have faith in me and I want to show what I’m worth here. We young players – myself, Juan Jesus, Benassi, Bessa and others – can sense the confidence that the coach and club have in us. All my thoughts are on recovering soon and coming back."

Former Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez handed Coutinho his first-team debut at Inter in 2010 and he made a strong impression while on loan to Spanish side Espanyol last season.
