Interested clubs Philippe Coutinho such as Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur received a glimmer of hope regarding their chances of attracting the Brazilian star. Kia Joorabchian said that his client was interested in returning to a career in the Premier League.
Coutinho, 27, joined Bayern Munich on loan since the beginning of the season. Initial agreement, the loan period lasts for one full season and the German Bundesliga champions were not required to buy Coutinho permanently.
Before the German bundesliga was postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic, it could be said Philippe Coutinho performed brilliantly with Bayern Munchen. The proof, the former Inter Milan managed to package 9 goals and 8 assists in the league stage.
However, these statistics are still considered below expectations, so it is believed the Bayern Munich will not redeem the official tag permanently. Moreover, Barcelona put a price tag that is high enough for the Brazilian star.
No wonder the future of Coutinho has recently become a byword of European media. There is a link with Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester United to Paris Saint-Germain.
While returning to Barcelona is no longer a good option, because the Catalan club bought Antoine Griezman from Atletico Madrid last summer.
Now, Coutinho enthusiasts, especially those from the UK, can begin to seriously consider options for recruiting the playmaker. Because, Kia Joorabchian admitted that his client was interested in returning to a career in the Premier League.
“Coutinho has a desire to return to the Premier League at some point. That might not happen this year, it might also happen this year, we never know. “We really haven’t discussed anything at this time,” Kia Joorabchian told Sky Sports.
Coutinho had indeed become a star in the Premier League with Liverpoool. He performed very well for the Reds. However, in the January 2018 transfer market, a surprise move to Barcelona after being redeemed through a dowry of 150 million Euros.
Unfortunately, his career at Barcelona was not so smooth that he ended up on loan at Bayern Munich last summer.
Until now, there are reportedly three serious interests of Coutinho from the English Premier League, including Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur. The last club is claimed to be ready to fulfill the salary request of the player if willing to join.
