After joining Barcelona for 145 million euros from Liverpool the Brazilian international has failed to fit in the Camp Nou. The Spanish giants loaned the player to Bayern Munich with a buyout clause of 108 million euros in hopes to sell their expensive player but to the disappointment of the La Liga leaders the German side has opted against signing Coutinho as a permeant player for their side. The attacking midfielder will return back to Barca and is set to join many players such as Ivan Rakitic, Arturo Vidal, Samuel Umtiti, Junior Firpo and Ousmane Dembele who are all set to leave the club over the summer transfer window.
The Brazilian international has an estimated market value of 56 million euros and has received interest from many English clubs such as Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Tottenham and Newcastle. Despite being heavily linked with a move to the Premier league, the English clubs are currently trying to negotiate a cheaper deals for the playmaker as they have a limited transfer budgets caused due to the outbreak of the coronavirus.
Everton have joined the race to sign Coutinho.
According to the Daily Mail, Barcelona have offered to loan the Brazilian superstar to Everton on a season long loan deal in which the Spanish side have stated that they are willing to pay a third of his wages. This deal has been offered to make the playmaker more affordable for Everton, however till now the English club hasn’t responded to this offer. The fact that the Spanish giants are willing to pay a third of Coutinho’s wages might tempt the other English clubs to show more interest to sign the Brazilian player.
Quique Setien must try to negotiate a deal to sell the Brazilian international at a higher price if he hopes to sign his primary transfer targets Neymar or Lautaro Martinez in the upcoming transfer window. Alternatively, the sale of Coutinho can help increase the clubs transfer budget which can be used to strengthen the other positions of their side.
