Chelsea Closest to Catching Coutinho


It is rumoured that Chelsea has emerged as the favourites to strike a deal for Barcelona midfielder Philippe Coutinho.

Coutinho’s enjoyed a fruitful loan campaign at Bayern Munich, scoring nine goals in all competitions from 32 appearances.

Although the Catalan giants would like to cash in on the Brazilian, the financial consequences of the coronavirus pandemic mean club officials would have to be open to loan deals, realistically.

Arsenal, Everton and Newcastle United were also linked with the 27-year-old, although Tottenham Hotspur was claimed to have ended their interest at the weekend.

But there are higher chances that the former Liverpool man will return to the Premier League with Chelsea, according to The Express.

The report suggests the Blues would be willing to pay a £10 m loan fee, as well as contribute in full to the wages of the playmaker.
