Brazilian midfielder Philippe Coutinho’s agent Kia Joorabchian has reiterated that the La Liga giants playmaker is interested in making a switch to the Premier League side.

The Brazil international is on the lookout for a new team after Bayern Munich rejected the chance to make his move permanent.

Coutinho, currently sidelined following the ankle injury, is due to make a return to La Liga giants, Barcelona – where he is also allegedly unwanted – at the end of the season.

Tottenham, Chelsea and Arsenal are all believed to be willing to take a punt on the 27-year-old playmaker, who starred with the Merseyside Reds during his previous spell in Premie League.

Joorabchian has put English teams on alert by revealing that his client would like to make a return to the Premier League once again.

“He has a desire to come back to the Premier League at some point,” he told Sky Sports News.

“It may not happen this year, it may happen this year – we don’t know. We really have not discussed anything for now.”

Coutinho has managed to found back of the net nine times and set up eight more in 29 Bundesliga appearences and Champions League games for Bayern this campaign.
