Coutinho pulls away from Premier League club Chelsea, Leicester and others contact ed.

A number of Premier League clubs have shown interest in Brazilian midfielder Filipe Coutinho, who is on loan from Barcelona to Bayern. The Sun reports.
 Coutinho moved to Barcelona from Liverpool in 2018. However, he did not produce a result in his first season and moved to Bayern last summer with a one-year deadline. He has scored eight goals in 22 league games this season, but he has never played well. While Bayern are not going to exercise the option of buying 120 million euros to around 1.3 billion yen, rumours about Coutinho have also been left-handed, with manager Hanji Frick hoping to stay.
 Leicester, led by Chelsea, Manchester United and Liverpool’s mentor Brendan Rodgers, have been in contact with their agents and are likely to return to the Premier League. Newcastle, which was recently acquired by a Saudi arabian company, are also interested in Coutinho.
 Barcelona want to sell Coutinho somehow and are unlikely to play for Barcelona after next season. Liverpool are said to have turned down Coutinho’s return last summer and Chelsea and Leicester are seen as key transfer destinations.
