Philippe Coutinhos agent drops update on midfielders future

Joorabchian admits Coutinho wants EPL return

The agent of Philippe Coutinho has indicated that the midfielder would prefer a return to the Premier League at some point amidst interest from the likes of Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea.

The Brazil international is presently out on loan at Bayern Munich from Barcelona where he has bagged nine goals and eight assists from 32 appearances in all competitions.

Bayern have already turned down the option to buy him permanently and reports have emerged that the Blaugrana may consider loaning him out for another campaign.

Spurs and Chelsea are among the clubs prepared to meet the £10m loan fee and pay the player's £250,000-a-week wages in full but Joorabchian has admitted that his client has the desire to make a Premier League comeback.

"He has a desire to come back to the Premier League at some point," He told Sky Sports News. "It may not happen this year, it may happen this year - we don't know. We really have not discussed anything for now."

Coutinho spent six years at Liverpool between 2012 and 2018 before he made the big-money move to Barcelona. The Merseyside giants don't seem to hold an interest in re-signing him.
