With Willian all but joining Arsenal, Philippe Coutinho might linkup with his Brazil teammate thanks to agent Kia Joorabchian.

Joorabchian shared that Countinho is currently busy with Bayern Munich’s Champions League adventures. However, once those trials are finished, the talented attacker will be on the run. 

Coutinho has been linked with a return to Premier League and Arsenal have been linked. Matteo Guendouzi will be made a makeshift in any such deal

Joorabchian did not dive into specifics but believes a Premier League return is on the cards for Coutinho.

“Because the Champions League is going to run all the way until August 23, I think it will be difficult for players like Coutinho to make any commitment or move until that date,” Daily Star quoted Joorabchian.

“He has the Champions League at the moment and they have to qualify for the next round [against Chelsea], and then he could play Barcelona, believe it or not.

“After the Champions League, it’s not been a secret that he wants to come back to the Premier League if he can; he loves playing in the Premier League and is adored in the Premier League.”

“It is one of his priorities… but he is also not against staying at Barcelona, so it is very much open.”

“There is much genuine interest in Philippe because he is a great player and a big success. There is always interest.”
