Reports from Spain have revealed that Philippe Coutinho is poised to make a return to the premier league before tomorrow’s deadline after Barcelona agreed that he can leave on loan.

In view of this, former club Liverpool, Arsenal, Manchester United and Tottenham have all registered their interest in the Brazilian who has struggled to recapture his form since joining Barcelona from Liverpoolfor £142million in January 2018.

The 27-year-old had earlier wanted tostay and fight for his place but with Barcelona looking to accommodate new signing,Antoine Griezmann, he and his representatives had started exploring other alternatives.

The Spanish champions will allow him to leave on an initial loan with view to making a deal permanent.

Meanwhile, Tottenham had been reported to be in pole position to land his services for next season.
