Prem back for the Selecao star?
Chelsea have been in contact with Barcelona over the availability of Coutinho, with London quoted £ 100 million ($ 130 million) for Brazilian services, according to Express.
The former Liverpool player had a positive start to life at the Camp Nou, but was late in power, with Ousmane Dembele being preferred in the attack.
Manchester United were reportedly interested in the 26-year-old, but Chelsea reportedly did not obstruct Barca's assessment of the playmaker, which meant the fight could take place for his signature.
It is said that the League champions plan to use the money earned from the sale of Coutinho to help fund Neymar's return to Spain.
