Philippe Coutinho wants Premier League return

Barcelona midfielder Philippe Coutinho wants to return to the Premier League after a tough outing in Spain.

Coutinho has struggled to nail down a place at Barca mostly due to consistent injuries and according to Sport Witness, the player wants to return to the Premier League with Leicester City said to be interested in his services.

They also note that Mundo Deportivo has claimed Coutinho wants to return to the Premier League and has instructed his agent to make it happen.

It was in the Premier League with Liverpool where Coutinho really made a name for himself with his stellar performances at Anfield earning him a move to the Nou Camp in one of the most expensive transfers in the history of football.

Leicester wants the Brazilian to join the club should they lose midfielder Youri Tielemans who has strongly been linked with a move to Liverpool this summer.

Coutinho who missed a chunk of last season through injury has returned to light training as revealed by his club this week; Barcelona keen to offload him as they want to balance their financial books.

Apart from Leicester, the player has been linked with French giants Olympique Marseille and Seria A side AC Milan.
