Coming from a poorly spent season at Barcelona FC, which might have been his last one as a Blaugrana player, Brazilian international attacking midfielder and winger Philippe Coutinho, who just turned 29, barely capped 14 times throughout the season which has just been wrapped up.

Linked to a move back to Premier League more than once, throughout the years, Coutinho, who joined Spanish giants first in January 2018, is now reportedly growing into a major Leicester City target. Foxes had inquired him a couple years ago already, and theirs might end up being a good spot for Coutinho to start anew and refresh his career.

Still on deal with Barça until June 2023, Coutinho, who had his breakthrough by playing into Liverpool ranks, under current Leicester gaffer Brendan Rodgers himself, also used to play for such clubs as Bayern Munich (which he won Champions League for in 2019/20) and Inter Milan. Previously pursued by Arsenal, the 1992-born playmaker is tracked by Everton as well at the time.
