Liverpool star Coutinho targeted by Real Madrid
Liverpool star Philippe Coutinho is on Real Madrid’s wish-list in the coming summer according to Gianluca Di Marzio’s notable staff journalist Fabrizio Romano.
The Brazilian has been in superb form for the Reds this season with six goals and five assists to his credit in 26 appearances this season.
After arriving from Inter Milan for £8.5m in last year’s January Transfer Window, Coutinho has endeared himself to the adulation of the Anfield faithful with his mesmerizing performances on the pitch.
Real Madrid were earlier interested in the Brazilian and have scouted him according to Romano.

The 21 year old possesses tremendous versatility and has shown great technical ability playing either on the wings or at the top of Rodger’s flexible diamond formation this campaign.
Liverpool already look set to have booked a Champions League spot for next season and with Brendan Rogers pining high hopes on the Brazilian, Coutinho’s exit from Anfield is highly unlikely.
David Amoyal, senior Football Transfers pundit in the Serie A and also a columnist in Gianluca Di Marzio also felt that scouts from other clubs are always free to watch from the stands but that doesn’t mean the player will be sold.
@tc917 I trust Fab especially since Coutinho was Inter and Fab knows that club so well- doesn’t mean he will be sold
