Philippe Coutinho wants to return to the Premier League, according to his agent Kia Joorabchian. Chelsea, Arsenal and Newcastle have all been linked with a move for the Brazilian.
Coutinho has struggled for form since moving to Barcelona from Liverpool in January 2018.
The midfielder has spent this season out on loan to Bayern Munich but they are not expected make that move permanent.
Barca want to reshape their squad this summer and are thought to be keen on getting Coutinho’s wages off the bill.
And Joorabchian claims his client is keen on a return to the UK.
“He has a desire to come back to the Premier League at some point,” Joorabchian told Sky Sports.
“I have never heard those figures,” the agent explained. “None of these numbers have ever been discussed.”
Barca manager Quique Setien spoke in April about the possibility of Coutinho remaining at the Nou Camp to fight for his place.
“Coutinho is a great player, I like him very much. Basically, he is a Barcelona player,” he told RAC1 radio station.
“Of course, I would want to have him back. I would want to talk with him.”
