Leicester interested in Coutinho

Leicester City are interested in signing Barcelona midfielder Philippe Coutinho in the summer.

 

According to Sportwitness, Leicester have already contracted the Brazilian player as Coutinho expressed that he is ready to return to the Premier League.

 

It is already clear that Barcelona are willing to sell the midfielder in the summer and the price they are most certainly going to set is around €75m.


 


The 27-year-old Brazilian has already played for Rodgers and Coutinho managed to flourish under him. The former Liverpool boss managed to develop Coutinho as a bright star.

 

Since leaving Liverpool in 2018, Coutinho's career has been stalled and now maybe if he joins Leicester Rodgers will rediscover his confidence again.


 


The Leicester City boss knows the player very well and his trust in Coutinho will help the player recover his previous form.

 

The 27-year-old is a world class player and if Leicester manage to sign him, it could prove to be great for both sides.

 

Coutinho is still yet to reach his peak, and if Leicester sign him they could resurrect his career.

 

Signing the Brazilian might turn out to be a good move for Leicester too, as they are most certainly going to play in the Champions League next season and they will need a class player like Coutinho.

 

However, Coutinho has been linked with a move to Chelsea in the summer. It has been reported that Lampard is interested in signing him to strengthen his midfield area.


 


Inter is another possible landing for the Brazilian as Barcelona are looking to sign Lautaro Martinez in the summer, but his price might turn out to be very high for the Catalans and they might swap the two players.

 

As Philippe Coutinho said to his agent he is more interested in returning to the Premier League rather than Serie A, so we will only have to wait and see where he ends up this summer.
