The 20 year-old Brazilian has signed a long term deal at Anfield after the two clubs agreed a fee last week, reportedly around £8.5 million.
Coutinho is an exciting prospect who is very comfortable with the ball at this feet – both when it comes to dribbling and caressing the ball about.
Though naturally a process of adaptation will be required, it can be expected that he will likely fit in well with the passing game that Brendan Rodgers is looking to implement with the Reds.
Liverpool will hope to benefit from the attacking flair Coutinho will bring to the side, with much of their play currently coming through virtuoso dribbles and shots from the likes of Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge.
The Brazilian too has a venomous shot, but Rodgers will hope to see more team play with him in the side.
Capable of playing both up front, on the wing, and in the trequartista position, Coutinho will wear the number 10 shirt at Anfield, replacing previous owners Joe Cole and Andriy Voronin.
If he can have half as decent an Anfield career as those two, he will be a very good signing indeed.
