Brazilian midfielder Philippe Coutinho is available this summer after struggling to impress since he left Liverpool for Barcelona in January 2018.

Chelsea are reportedly interested in signing the 27 year old Brazilian and according to former Manchester United and Bayern Munich midfielder Owen Hargreaves, Coutinho will make a lot of teams better.

“I love his game, I love him as a player,” Hargreaves said, as quoted by Daily Express.

“He is obviously going though a bit of a tough time after leaving Liverpool.

“Barca didn’t work and Bayern hasn’t really worked, but there is still plenty of time and I would never count him out.

“I would love to see him back in the Premier League. He makes a lot of teams better.

“Premier League teams are probably the only ones with the capacity to sign him and, let’s be honest, when he was here he was a dream to watch.

“If Liverpool are missing one thing it is probably a No 10-ish player.

“I know they probably don’t need him because that front three are so good as is the balance in midfield.

“There are a lot of rumours about Chelsea, even Man United.

“There are a lot of teams where if I was sporting director, surely his name is on a lot of teams’ lists to come in and make a big impact.

“The question is does he do it on loan again or is it a sale because it doesn’t look like he’s going to stay at Barcelona.”
