Leicester City plot sensational move for Barcelona’s Brazilian star

FA Cup winners Leicester City are reportedly plotting out a move for a Barcelona star that could easily be one of the coups of the summer transfer window.

According to Mundo Deportivo in Spain, Leicester want to bring Brazilian international Coutinho back to the Premier League, with a loan bid said to be the deal seeked.

The loan agreement is likely to be worth around 20 million euros, with Barcelona keen to shift on players and free up their sky-high wages.

Coutinho moved from Liverpool to Barcelona in 2018 for an eye-watering fee of €160 million, and while the move to Spain hasn’t quite gone to plan, a year-long loan at Bayern Munich last season saw the Brazilian lift the Champions League.
