Chelsea latest news: Blues Set to Sign Barcelona Star On A Loan Deal

The West London giants Chelsea have declined to rule out the possibility of taking Barcelona star Coutinho on loan this summer.

Former Liverpool midfielder will be heading back to Spain after his season-long loan to Bayern Munich but could fancy trading his career somewhere else.

The Blues are said to have made Bayer Leverkusen’s Kai Havertz as their prime target this summer but appeared to have identified Coutinho as the alternative.

Kai’s value is in the region of £90m and the German outfits are not willing to sell unless the release clause is met. They are ready to take instalments to cover up the transfer fee.

However, Coutinho can be available for a loan of around £9m a year with the option of buy at the end of the season. Arsenal and Spurs have been linked with the Brazilian.

Is Coutinho good enough to break into Chelsea’s Midfield?
