Inter's Philippe Coutinho attracting Premier League interest - report
Inter youngster Philippe Coutinho is reportedly attracting several January offers from Premier League sides Aston Villa and Southampton.
The 20-year-old midfielder was loaned to Spanish outfit Espanyol for part of last season and has again failed to break into the Nerazzurri first eleven.
According to the Corriere dello Sport, Coutinho could be temporarily on his way out of the San Siro exit again, but this time to England.
Aston Villa are in dire straits at the moment, sitting one point above the relegation zone, and are in need of creative reinforcements.
Southampton are also said to be showing an interest as they close in on a deal for Cagliari defender Davide Astori.
The talented Brazilian, who has been in Italy since leaving boyhood club Vasco da Gama in 2010, has started just three games for fourth-placed Inter this term.
