All signs point towards Philippe Coutinho leaving FC Barcelona this summer. However, it seems the Brazil international is a man in demand these days as several top sides are reportedly interested in making a move for him.

According to a report from transfer specialist Gianluca Di Marzio, Chelsea are keen to sign the Brazilian as the perfect replacement for Eden Hazard, who’s widely expected to join Real Madrid in the coming days. However, Chelsea’s chances to acquire the former Inter and Liverpool star do not depend on them since they would have to get his current transfer ban lifted.

The Blues are not the only side looking to sign the Brazilian star, however, since AS has reported that Paris Saint-Germain are also open to make a move for Coutinho. Their offer might be a bit more appealing, however – the current Ligue 1 champions would offer €100m plus Edinson Cavani in exchange for Coutinho. Thomas Tuchel’s idea would be to assemble an attacking line of Coutinho, Neymar and Kylian Mbappe next season.

Barcelona will reportedly demand €150m for the attacker signed from Liverpool 18 months ago, although they might have to lower their expectations considering Coutinho’s poor season during the 2018-19 campaign. Where will he land next summer?
