Liverpool have agreed an £8.5m deal for Inter Milan's Brazilian midfielder Philippe Coutinho.
The 20-year-old is expected to travel to Merseyside early next week for a medical and Liverpool will need to apply for a work permit before the deal can be completed.
Liverpool had two bids turned down for him last week, while Southampton are also interested in signing the player.
But it is understood that Coutinho expressed a preference for Anfield.
That is despite having worked with new Saints manager Mauricio Pochettino, while on loan at Espanyol last season.
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers revealed on Friday that he was determined to bolster his squad with more new players before the transfer window closes at the end of January.
