Philippe Coutinho

West London outfit Chelsea have been identified as the likely destination of Brazilian international and Barcelona star Philippe Coutinho ahead of the coming summer transfer window.

Philippe Coutinho has been linked with a move away from the Camp Nou as he has fallen out of favour in the manager Valverde team with France international Ousmane Dembele being selected ahead of him.

The lack of playing time and bench roles handed to Philippe Coutinho is reported to have gotten him frustrated which is the reason why he seeks a move away from the club as there is no hope of a first-team football.

Philippe Coutinho was in action for Barcelona on Tuesday night where he scored a superb goal to help his team with a qualification as well as to prove that he still got a lot to offer.

However, there are still speculations that he would be leaving the club and a number of offers are already available for him but he favours a move to the West London outfit Chelsea.

Chelsea are reported to be keen on the signature of Philippe Coutinho so he can come in as a replacement for Wales international Eden Hazard who is reportedly leaving the club at the end of the season.
