Coutinho wants Liverpool or Barcelona, but is likely to choose between Everton and Leicester

Philipe Coutinho's agent made huge efforts in talks around re-joining Liverpool, but he got the negative answer about a potential return for Brazilian on Enfield. 

The Brazil international is on loan at Bayern Munich from Barcelona but according to reports from Germany, the champions are not interested in making the move permanent. 

Coutinho had a phenomenal period in Liverpool before moving to Catalonia in January 2018 but since then, he struggled to maintain on the highest level and failed to accompany the price tag of 120m euros, which Barca paid for his signature. 

The Spaniards are ready to part ways with the 27-year-old and he was recently linked with several teams including Liverpool's rivals Everton and another Premier League side, Leicester City.

The Reds are the preferred choice according to his agent Kia Joorbachian but the interest seems not to be mutual. 

However, the current manager of Foxes Brandan Rodgers was the man who brought him to Liverpool and the connection with Leicester seems natural, while Everton's boss Carlo Ancelotti is an admirer of his skills and is ready to splash the cash for such investment.

Even if Coutinho fails to attract any buyer in the upcoming summer, Barcelona is willing to send the player out on loan, once again. But, with an included clause which would obligate player purchase after the loan period is finished.

Normally, the world is going through the coronavirus pandemic period and the expected consequences will, and are already changing the transfer market, due to the lack of financial revenue. 

Brazilian was Liverpool's best player two seasons in a row and netted over 50 goals during his time in England. Still, Jurgen Klopp and the club's board decided to free the space for some other players and to sell the attacker which was later recognized as a good decision.
