Barcelona forward Philippe Coutinho has reportedly drawn some interest from clubs back in England. The Brazilian has had a rough tenure at Barcelona, with multiple injuries sidelining any progress he made on the pitch.

The tough thing about Coutinho is he was having a somewhat decent season under Ronald Koeman before getting hurt. The season away at Bayern seemed to help him progress as a player.

However, now that he’s been injured yet again there may be a realization that his future shouldn’t be at Barca. Arsenal and Everton are both apparently interested in Coutinho. His previous success in the Premier League may be appealing to those clubs and make his purchase worthwhile.
