Atletico Madrid will revive their interest in Liverpool’s Philippe Coutinho if they can qualify for the Champions League’s knockout stages, writes Tom Hopkinson in the Sunday People.

The Spaniards made tentative enquiries about the Brazil midfielder in the summer, but their interest was quickly rebuffed by the Anfield giants.

However, that will not stop them returning with an offer when the transfer window reopens in the new year if they find themselves in need of a new playmaker.

Rio-born Coutinho, 21, is recovering from a successful operation after injuring a shoulder against Swansea earlier this month.

And, while initial reports suggested he would be out until the end of October, Coutinho hopes to be back in action for the Reds much sooner.
