Philippe Coutinho flourished in the Premier League just a few years ago, impressing for Liverpool under Brendan Rodgers and Jurgen Klopp.

However, Coutinho has struggled to be close to the player he was since a big money move to Barcelona and then a two-year loan spell with Bayern Munich.

The Brazilian is now strongly being linked with a return to the Premier League, with Chelsea named among his potential destinations.

Meanwhile, his agent Kia Joorabchian, has admitted that he’s unsure of where Coutinho will play next season, and can’t also claim that clubs will be in a good place financially to make such deals happen.

“The fact I’m an Arsenal supporter is not a secret,” he told Sky Sports.

“I don’t have any preference where the players go. I don’t try to push someone to one club or another. Everything is a possibility.

“The question is what are going to be the financial conditions of all the clubs, including Barcelona and all the Premier League clubs at the end of this pandemic.”

“Everyone wants to stay safe, stay healthy and get back to training. Everyone is trying to stay positive,” he added.

“None of my boys have spoken to me in terms of their future.

“All my boys are concentrating on getting through this period of time and getting back to normality.

“It becomes very difficult to say I’m going to spend £100m on a player.

“I think you’re also going to encounter a moral issue in this.

“Is it morally correct when others are suffering?”
