Chelsea have contacted Barcelona about a transfer for the former Liverpool midfielder and the Blues have also contacted Coutinho to find out his intentions.

Coutinho has struggled to meet expectations at Barcelona since making a £142 million switch from Liverpool in January 2018.

Barcelona are reportedly desperate to sell the 27 year old Brazilian midfielder this summer and have lowered their asking price to £77 million ahead of the summer window.

Coutinho has made 22 appearances while on loan at Bayern Munich, scoring 8 goals.

    Coutinho has no position in midfield, we have enough and good players in that position. his playing is not impressive to convince our scout to recommend him. the likes of ngolo, kova, mount, lrc, odoi, pulisic, willian, ziyech, billy, ross, etc. there is no room for Coutinho
