Liverpool have confirmed the signing of Inter Milan midfielder Philippe Coutinho on a long-term deal.
The 20-year-old is the second player to join the club in January, after the signing of Daniel Sturridge from Chelsea.
The Brazilian, who has been capped once by his country, started his career at Vasco da Gama before moving to Milan in 2010.
"I'm feeling very happy, it's a very important step in my career and I'm expecting to come here and play good football to give my contribution on the pitch," he told Liverpool's official website.
"Liverpool is a great club with great players. We've always heard about Liverpool's history in Brazil. They are the club that have been interested in me and that have showed this interest so I know they believe in me and my football."
Liverpool managing director Ian Ayre added, "We're always delighted when we get the players we go after.
"It has been a successful transfer window for us, coming off the back of acquiring Daniel Sturridge from Chelsea and now Philippe from Inter Milan.
"I think that bodes well for us for the rest of the season and the future."
