Barcelona midfielder Philippe Coutinho has been linked with a move to the Premier League this summer.
The likes of Tottenham and Chelsea are keen on the player.
The Brazilian has struggled to make an impact since his big-money move to Camp Nou, and the Catalan giants are prepared to cash in on him now.
None of his suitors is willing to pay Barcelona’s steep asking price, and the Spanish club is now looking to complete a swap deal for the midfield.
As per reports, the La Liga giants want to improve their back four, and they are now looking at the defenders at Chelsea and Tottenham so that they can include those players in a deal for Coutinho.
It will be interesting to see if Barcelona can execute such a deal this summer. Swap deals are quite complicated, and it is often hard to secure an agreement from the multiple parties involved.
In theory, the transfer would make sense for all parties, but several economic factors involved in the move make it difficult.
Coutinho would benefit from a return to the Premier League.
The Brazilian played his best football in England at Liverpool. He might get his confidence back once he returns to his comfort zone.
It will be interesting to see where he ends up this summer. Both Spurs and Chelsea could use a creative player like him on their side.
