Philippe Coutinho joined Liverpool in January 2013 from Inter Milan. His talent was evident from an early age, with comparisons being made in his homeland to several of Brazil's modern stars - including Kaka and Ronaldinho - due to the attacking midfielder's deft touch and creativity.
He began his career at one of Rio de Janeiro's biggest clubs, Vasco da Gama. Alerted to his potential at 16 years old, Europe's heavyweight clubs battled for his signature and it was Italian giants Inter Milan who won the race to conclude a transfer worth around €4million in 2008.
