‘Told just before we came on air’: Sky reporter gives latest update on Coutinho transfer live on air
Aston Villa, Liverpool and Everton have all been linked with Philippe Coutinho in recent days.
According to Goal Brasil, the Villans, the Reds and the Toffees are all eyeing the 29-year-old.
Newcastle, Arsenal and Tottenham have also appeared in speculation surrounding Coutinho’s future.
Now, speculation linking the Barcelona ace with a return to the Premier League is intensifying.
On Wednesday, several outlets including The Guardian claimed Villa have contacted the player’s agent.
Speaking on the Sky Sports Transfer Show on Wednesday afternoon, Kaveh Solhekol shared a fresh update on Coutinho.
“The information we have is there’s five Premier League clubs,” Solkehol began (via Football Daily).
“I was actually told just before we came on air that a sixth Premier League club are also expressing an interest in signing him.
“I think if you look at what’s out there on social media if you read what someone like Sami Mokbel is writing, you can draw your own conclusions.
“Because there’s not that many clubs in the Premier League who are in a position to be able to sign someone like Philippe Coutinho.
“But he himself wants to come to the Premier League.”
Coutinho has struggled at Barcelona since his big-money move from Liverpool in 2018.
Indeed, his biggest success since joining Barca came as a loanee in Bayern Munich’s Champions League-winning squad.
Coutinho shone for Liverpool in the Premier League and it’ll be good to see him plying his trade in England once again.
The question is, who will he be playing for?
