Real Madrid to swoop for Liverpool midfielder?
Real Madrid could be eyeing a surprise move for Philippe Coutinho once they transfer embargo is lifted. The Brazil international has been key to Liverpool's bright start to the campaign.
Coutinho has netted five times for Jurgen Klopp's side, who are currently heading the Premier League standings.
According to Diario Gol, the midfielder's performances have captured the attention of Los Blancos boss Zinedine Zidane, who is looking for a future replacement for James Rodriguez.
Rodriguez has earned limited playing time since the start of the season, and he is on the search for a fresh club where he would be the main man to lead the attack.
The Reds have previously lost key players in Luis Suarez and Fernando Torres to Barcelona and Chelsea respectively, and it is highly unlikely they will considers any offers, given they are in a great shape to end their Premier League drought.
