According to Sky Sports, Barcelona, club is open to selling Phillipe Coutinho back to a Premier League club. The 29-year-old Brazilian has been out of favour with his club since joining in 2018. Barcelona had paid Liverpool £121.50m to get him to their club and since then the player career hadn’t been smooth sailing.

Phillipe Coutinho at his time in Barcelona has scored 15 and assisted 9 goals in the last 3 years. He had been injured since the start of the year and is set to be fit for the start of the new season. Current being valued at £27.00m by Transfermarkt, it feels as the time for the Brazilian is close to the end at Barcelona.

Philippe Coutinho has 0.9 dribbles per 90 as well as an 85% pass accuracy in the attacking half of the field. This loan spell at Bayern München was a revival for the Brazilian. He won the Champions League as well as the Bundesliga and the German Cup. He scored 11 goals and 9 assists at his time with Bayern München.

According to rumours, Arsenal, Leicester City and Everton are interested in signing him on a loan to buy the deal. Leicester have been said to have offered £20m for Philippe Coutinho. This comes after Brazilian having 2 years left on his deal. Realistic the clubs he could go to are the ones in the top 6 such as Everton as well as Leicester City. The two teams in the past have had massive gaps in creativity within the squad. A player with his talent shall shine there and be able to display his style of play

HOW WILL Phillipe COUTINHO FIT THE LEICESTER CITY ATTACK For The Next Season of the Premier League ?

Last season Leicester city started in a 4-2-3-1 and a 4-1-2-1-2. Each of the formations requires a central attacking midfielder. With the rumour of Maddison Leaving for Arsenal for £62.00m, Philippe can be a cheaper alternative for the club. He can also play as a left-winger when needed and as a false nine when require. Known for his passing prowess he can pass through balls to the likes of Vardy and Iheanacho. His ability to deliver press breaking passes can help the Brendan Rodgers side to secure the top 4 this season.


With the appointment of Rafa Benitez to the club. The club currently in pre-season has been using the 4-3-1-2 formation with a number 10. Though this move could make Liverpool fans despise Coutinho forever, this move makes more sense. In the past, Rafa Benitez teams have suited to a compact counter-attacking style. With the hard-working midfield of Allan and Doucoure, Phillipe can be given the creative freedom he loves. With Calvin lewis being accompanied by Moise Kean, the trio could strike fear into the eyes of the defenders. Last season the collapse of the team form after the winter break, maybe with this transfer things could be different for the toffees.

Philippe Coutinho in the eyes has been past his prime but his loan at Bayern clearly shows if given the chance the player can sign for the team. A loan deal for the Brazilian could be what the forgotten talent needs to revitalize his career in the eyes of the football fans. To be able to see Phillipe Coutinho work his magic at the Premier League would be a treat for many fans of the league.
