Philippe Coutinho Poses With Liverpool Shirt Ahead Of Transfer (PICTURES)

Philippe Coutinho is a Liverpool player in all but writing after a picture emerged of him posing with a signed Reds shirt.

The Brazilian is expected to complete his £8.5m transfer from Internazionale today and could make his Reds debut at Manchester City on Sunday.

Coutinho, 20, was yesterday pictured at the club's Melwood training ground as he underwent a medical.

Inter president Massimo Moratti has said Coutinho can capitalise on a "great opportunity" at Anfield.

Moratti told the club's website: "There are opportunities there to be seized. Sometimes certain players need the chance to play more.

"And that's why I think this could be a great opportunity for a Coutinho, and a deal that could go very well for us too."
