Philippe Coutinho’s Agent Kia Joorabchian has revealed that his client wants a return back to England, MySportDab reports.
The ex Liverpool player is currently on loan at Bayern Munich from Barcelona.
However, his future at Barcelona Spain looks uncertain and the Catalan club are ready to sell him.
MySportDab understands that Coutinho has attracted interest from Tottenham, Arsenal and Leicester City.
His Agent Joorabchian has now expressed the Brazilian’s desire for a return to the Premier League.
‘It’s not a secret that he wants to return back to the Premier League,’ Joorabchian told talkSPORT.
‘It’s still very much possible. There is a lot of interest.’
However, due to the new dates of the Champions League and transfer window, Joorabchian said it would take some time for any transfer deal.
‘Because the Champions League will not end until August 23, it’s very difficult for players like Coutinho to make any commitments before that date,’ he added.
‘Because he’s in Champions League right now, they have to qualify to the next round. And then he could still play Barcelona.
‘For him to make a commitment before the Champions League ends is very difficult.
‘He loves the Premier League, he is loved in the Premier League and playing there is one his priorities. He’s not against staying at Barcelona.’
"He wants to come back to the Premier League if he can." ✅
"But he's also not at all against staying at Barcelona." 🇪🇸
"There's a lot of genuine interest."📝

However, there’s the possibility that Coutinho will be loaned out again for next season.
The Brazilian may also have to take a wage cut in order to secure a transfer, with his €20m (£18.2m) fee for a loan and €10m (£9.1m) wages to pay.
In the 2019-20 season at Bayern Munich, Coutinho scored nine goals and provided eight assists 34 matches across all competitions.
