Chelsea is eyeing for a potential move for Barcelona ace Philippe Coutinho this summer only if they can overturn a transfer ban imposed on the club.
As of now, the Blues are currently serving a two-window transfer ban from FIFA that prevents the club from signing players until 2020.
A recent report in the Mirror states that Coutinho has been identified as the ideal replacement for the outgoing Eden Hazard who will be leaving the Stamford Bridge the next week.
Coutinho joined Barcelona from Liverpool in January 2018 for a high fee of £144m but hasn’t been so convincing and failed to convince supporters at the Camp Nou.
The Spanish giants will be aiming to raise cash for the summer transfer by selling Coutinho.
The 26-year-old attacking midfielder would be open for a move to Premier League for the next season and most likely to favour the Stamford Bridge.
The Brazilian international has had performed very poorly in the last one year after making a big money transfer to Barcelona.
