According to The Daily Express, via Sky Sports, Coutinho wants to move to London and leave Barcelona ahead of next season.
The report claims that Coutinho’s future is up in the air after just 18 months at Barcelona since joining from Premier League side Liverpool in January 2018.
Manchester United and PSG are both said to be interested in a move for the midfielder, but Chelsea have been boosted as Coutinho would favour a transfer to Stamford Bridge over PSG and United.
Coutinho impressed for Brazil on Friday night in their Copa America clash with Bolivia, scoring twice in a 3-0 win for his country.
The winger scored 11 goals in 53 games for Barcelona last season, after scoring 10 in 22 in his first six months with the club.
He spent six years in the Premier League with Liverpool, scoring 41 goals in 152 games.
Brazilians Chelsea could target
Chelsea have already been linked with a swoop for the Ajax winger, who was super fo the Dutch side last season in the Champions League.
The Porto left-back would be a superb signing for Chelsea. Telles is excellent on the ball and competent defensively.
The Napoli midfielder would be a sensational buy for the Blues. The Brazilian central midfielder has been one of the best midfielders in the Serie A in recent seasons.
Chelsea could look to speak to Maurizio Sarri again and see if he is willing to part ways with Alex Sandro this summer.
