Barcelona star hoping for Premier League move but wants Chelsea over Liverpool
Philippe Coutinho is apparently hoping to recover his career back in the Premier League however has a slight inclination for a move to Chelsea over his previous club Liverpool.
The Brazil International was a success in his time at Anfield, however his career has gone downhill significantly since he left the Reds to join Barcelona, who could now do with disposing of him.
As indicated by the most recent from Don Balon, Coutinho is being considered for a return to Liverpool by Jurgen Klopp, but the German tactician is likewise keen on Wolves star Adama Traore as a choice in the attacking midfield role.
It is a result of this vulnerability, as per Don Balon, that Coutinho would prefer to connect up with Frank Lampard at Chelsea, where he would unquestionably be all the more a key player.
Liverpool have not so much missed Coutinho since his exit and don’t especially need to make any signings in attack, however Chelsea clearly need to fortify in that role if they are to become genuine title contenders again at any point in the near future.
The Blues sold Eden Hazard to Real Madrid the previous summer and couldn’t replace him at the time because of their transfer ban, so signing Coutinho now could be perfect to give Lampard the upgrade he needs around there of the pitch.
It has recently been proposed that Coutinho could leave Barcelona for around £70million this summer, as indicated by an ongoing report from the Daily Mirror.
The 27-year-old appears to be somewhat of a hazard at that cost, however if he can rediscover his best form it would without a doubt be well justified, despite all the trouble for Liverpool or Chelsea.
