Philippe Coutinho heading to Liverpool
Liverpool have already captured Daniel Sturridge from Chelsea and manager Brendan Rodgers is keen to bring in few more faces before the window shuts down next week.
The Reds already had a £5 million bid rejected for the player and according to reports from Liverpool Echo, the Anfield club will improve their offer to push the deal through.
The 20-year-old Brazilian is touted as one of the highly rated young midfielders in Europe. Cash strapped Serie A outfit Inter are looking to sell the prodigy who was signed by then manager Jose Mourinho, while the player himself is keen on a move to Merseyside after getting frustrated with the lack of first team opportunities.
