Chelsea has been in dire need of a talismanic attack presence since the departure of Eden Hazard to Madrid, and they are ready to take Philippe Coutinho to the Bridge.
Former Liverpool playmaker Phillipe Coutinho was linked to a move back to England after he failed to have the desired impact at Camp Nou in Barcelona, where he was at one point encouraged by the supporters of Barca. 27-year-old Coutinho is currently on loan to Bayern Munich, but it is still unlikely that he will stay with the club after this season.
Chelsea Transfer Chiefs were eager to seize the opportunity and bring Stamford Bridge to play as it was revealed that Barcelona was ready to let the player go.
Philippe Coutinho would have cost Chelsea £ 88 million, which is a reasonable fee if you sign a Coutinho quality player. Sources close to the player also confirmed that the Brazilian would welcome the opportunity to join the top club in the EPL.
Chelsea, however, was also linked to another Bundesliga player, Jadon Sancho. The UK International might prove too expensive for the Blues, as the club is also looking to strengthen its defense.
The signing of Coutinho, coupled with Hakim Ziyech, brings guaranteed creativity, goals and assists, and will help Chelsea to bid for titles. Football activities around Europe have been suspended as a result of the outbreak of Corona Virus, but Chelsea is ready to start the official process once football starts again.
