Liverpool in talks for Coutinho

Philippe Coutinho

Liverpool are to open talks with the representatives of Philippe Coutinho over a new contract, according to Sky Sports sources.

The Brazil international only signed an improved five-year deal in 2015, but the Reds are keen to reward him for the impressive form he has shown this season.

Coutinho, who recently returned from a six-week lay-off with an ankle ligament injury, has scored six goals in 18 appearances for Liverpool so far this campaign.
