Chelsea appear to be still interested in signing Barcelona midfielder Philippe Coutinho according to reports.

According to ESPN via Daily Express, Chelsea have not ruled out a loan deal for the Brazilian midfielder despite completing deals for Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech.

Barcelona are open to letting Coutinho leave this summer as they look to reduce their wage bill.

Meanwhile, Coutinho’s agent recently confirmed that his client wants to return to England.

“If the opportunity arises to come back to the Premier League, whether it be this year or in the future, he’s definitely looking at that,” Kia Joorabchian said.
