Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is keen on strengthening the squad during the summer transfer window as he builds a team capable of challenging for titles again.
There are several players on Chelsea’s shortlist but one of those players could cost Lampard his job.
According to Blues legend Alan Hudson, Lampard could put his job at risk if he does sign Coutinho this summer.
Hudson believes Coutinho is no longer the player he was at Liverpool.
“I think there’s been something wrong with him (Coutinho) since leaving Liverpool where he was sensational,” he told CaughtOffside.
“The questions far outweigh the answers, and for me his form has been in a decline similar to Alexis Sanchez after leaving Arsenal.
“Frank’s job depends on his next big signing because of him bringing through a lot of kids, and l think Frank will give him a wide berth.”
