Rodgers confirms talks over Inter starlet Coutinho
Aston Villa is interested in signing Inter midfielder Philippe Coutinho, according to the player's agent.

The Brazilian was loaned out to Espanyol last season and has made just five Serie A appearances for the San Siro club this term.

The 20-year-old's representative, Cacau Barbosa, has now revealed that his client is on the radar of Villans boss Paul Lambert.

"I can confirm Aston Villa made an enquiry," he told FC Inter News.

"They want him, but with all due respect for the proposal made to Philippe, at this moment there is still nothing concrete to suggest an exit from Inter.”

Coutinho scored on five occasions during his 16-game spell in La Liga last season.
