Coutinho ‘definitely’ open to Premier League return – agent

Philippe Coutinho is ‘definitely’ open to the possibility of returning to the Premier League, according his agent Kia Joorabchian.

The Brazilian failed to live up to the expectations following his €160 million move from Liverpool to Barcelona in January 2018. He spent this season on loan at Bayern Munich, but the Bundesliga champions decided against triggering the option to turn the deal permanent. His future is now up in the air, and while Barca boss Quique Setien recently said the Brazilian could be reintegrated into his squad, his representative appears to be pointing in another direction.

Chelsea, Arsenal, Newcastle and Tottenham Hotspur have all been credited with interest in bringing the 27-year-old playmaker back to England. Liverpool, on the other hand, reportedly rejected a chance to secure his return to Anfield.

Speaking to TalkSPORT, Joorabchian said Coutinho enjoyed playing in the Premier League very much and is looking at a possible return there, either this summer or at any point in the future.
