Transfer News Today: Liverpool move for Coutinho

Forum chatter

Frank "Oh my god Super Frank don't leave" Lampard appears increasingly likely to be leaving Chelsea at the end of the campaign, with no new contract forthcoming. The word this weekend is that LA Galaxy are the frontrunners for his signature. Could he be the man to replace David Beckham in Hollywood?

Tabloid speculation

After the success of Geoff Cameron, Stoke City could be looking to add another USA international to their ranks. Their target this January is thought to be Brek Shea, a tall, left-footed wide man. The 22-year-old currently plays for FC Dallas, but is thought to be keen to test himself in Europe.

Contact made

Queens Park Rangers have made an enquiry into the availability of Porto's sturdy centre-back Rolando. The Portuguese side are already believed to have rebuffed Rangers a number of times, but Harry Redknapp usually gets his man...

Bid tabled

Liverpool are believed to have made an £8million bid Internazionale midfielder Philippe Coutinho, 20. The Brazilian, a former prodigy at youth level, has not set the world alight in Serie A, but impressed on loan at Espanyol last season. The playmaker has also attracted interest from clubs in his homeland of late.

Medical and terms

Kaká's proposed return to Milan is edging ever closer. Representatives of the midfielder are in Italy to thrash out the details of his loan move from Real Madrid, which is likely to be completed in the next couple of days. Can the Brazilian recapture the kind of form that saw him with the Balon d'Or during his last spell at San Siro?
