Philippe Coutinho has reportedly been offered to Everton on a one-year loan as Barcelona look to offload the former Liverpool star.
There has even been speculation he could be re-signed by Liverpool, which would be something of a shock after the Brazilian’s £142million move to Barca in January 2018.
It is claimed that Barca would pay a third of Coutinho’s wages to make the deal more affordable for Carlo Ancelotti’s side.
Coutinho would represent the kind of marquee signing Everton owner Farhad Moshiri wants to make to help Ancelotti turn the Blues back into a force in the Premier League.
The player’s agent, Kia Joorabchian, is believed to be close friends with Moshiri, and that could aid any deal.
However, whether Coutinho would sign for the neighbours of the team he graced for five years in the Premier League remains to be seen.
Coutinho will be able to play for Bayern Munich in the closing stages of the Champions League after the club reportedly reached an agreement with Barcelona to extend his loan deal.
His original deal with the recently crowned German champions was due to expire on June 30, but the club have now managed to extend it for two months in the wake of the coronavirus crisis, according to Sky Germany.
Bayern have still not taken up their option to sign Coutinho on a permanent deal at the end of his loan agreement, and are unlikely to do so.
Coutinho has not featured for Bayern since the return of football as he recovered from surgery on an ankle injury.
But he is now back in full training ahead of their final two matches of the Bundesliga season, with the club having wrapped up the title on Tuesday.
