Barcelona attacker Phil Coutinho is looking for life beyond Camp Nou and Premier League is being touted as his favourable destination.

The Brazilian has endured torrid times with the Catalan giants and is expected to favour a move to Chelsea in order to join his national contingent at Stamford Bridge.

Manchester United are also interested in the 26-year-old but 130M asking price could prize them out and his Liverpool roots could also play an important part in him opting against playing at Old Trafford.

Chelsea have extra motivation to sign Coutinho as some in Chelsea’s hierarchy see the Brazilian as a possible replacement for Eden Hazard whose future remains a topic of mass speculation.
