Chelsea owner moves in to sign former Liverpool star

The West London outfit Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has reportedly given the approval to his team to secure the signature of Brazilian international Philippe Coutinho to the Stamford Bridge in the coming summer transfer window.

Philippe Coutinho has been linked away from Barcelona since the last January winter transfer window and it is claimed that he could be leaving the Camp Nou at the end of the season.

The report claims that life has not been the same for the former Liverpool star since he left in a big money deal of £142 million.

However, the West London outfit are seeking to hand Philippe Coutinho a way out for the revival of his career as they seek to land a playmaker and a goal scorer who will replace Belgium international Eden Hazard who is in his way to the Spanish La Liga outfit Real Madrid.

Meanwhile, the Blues team are under a ban that will not allow them to register new players until the next two transfer window but the Chelsea owner is hoping that he can have his appeal against the ban work through before the transfer window is opened.

Philippe Coutinho have been tipped to succeed in the English Premier League as a result of his knowledge of the team, having played at the Merseyside with Liverpool.
