It added that Steven Gerrard is aiming for a major overhaul of his squad this summer, with Leeds midfielder and England international Calvin Phillips being the main target.

Gerrard believes Coutinho’s signing will attract many big names at Aston Villa this summer.

“I only experienced one window in the villa, but I sat down with Lucas Digne in January and he said: ‘What’s going on with Coutinho?’ Gerard said.

‘Players ask questions. They want to know who they are playing with, and they want to play with good players.

“If we’re going to get things done, the players want to know that they’re doing it with other good players. That’s what happens.

‘Philip is still in his prime. When he came here he was not really fit and it would always take time to settle down but in the years to come he will be a big player here. ‘

Gerrard also said: ‘For him to be here full-time and settle down, he has to go to the next level because the feeling of knowing where he will be playing his football for the next four years will help him stay.

‘He’s a player who needs to feel needed; He needs to feel supported.
