Everton offered chance to sign Barcelona star

Coutinho offered to Everton on loan

Barcelona have reportedly offered Everton the chance to sign Philippe Coutinho on a season-long loan agreement next season.

Coutinho is presently on a temporary deal at Bayern Munich but the German side have decided against the option of signing him permanently.

Over the past few weeks, he has been fancied to return to the Premier League on a temporary basis and according to Transfer Window Podcast, the Toffees have been offered the opportunity to sign him.

The Blaugrana are likely to demand a loan fee of around £10m and it is claimed that they are prepared to pay a third of Coutinho's £250,000-a-week for his temporary return to England.

Coutinho has not featured for Bayern since the season restart because of an ankle surgery but he could make an appearance during the final two league games of the campaign.

The Brazil international is likely to stay put with the Munich giants until the conclusion of their Champions League campaign in August before pursuing a fresh challenge.
