German Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich have enquired about signing Barcelona playmaker Philippe Coutinho before the end of this summer’s transfer window.
This is according to the report from Spanish media outlet Mundo Deportivo which revealed that the Bavarian giants want to sign Coutinho this summer.
The German champions are without the wing forward duo of Arjen Robben and Frank Robert after the two players ended their career at the club last season.
Philippe Coutinho could be an addition to that department as Bayern Munich try to offset the loss of the two players.
Bayern Munich tried to sign Leroy Sane from Premier League champions Manchester City in a reported €100m deal this summer but the transfer was scuppered by the injury sustained by the player.
Sane suffered anterior cruciate ligament injury during the Community Shield clash with Liverpool who lost to the Citizens on penalties after both teams played out a 1-1 draw at the end of regulation time.
The German international winger has since been ruled out for at least six months as a result of that serious knee injury.
Bayern Munich see Coutinho as an alternative signing to the aforementioned Sane with the former Liverpool star surplus to requirements at Barcelona.
