Philippe Coutinho’s future continues to make headlines with the Brazilian reportedly interested in a move to Newcastle United.

France Football are reporting that a summer sale looks the most likely option with three teams in England keen: Tottenham, Everton and Newcastle United.

The Magpies are currently looking the favorites to land Coutinho, provided their proposed takeover goes through.

FF reckons negotiations are already underway with Coutinho and his team and that he “believes very strongly in the project.”

Coutinho’s agent, Kia Joorabchian, has already said recently that Coutinho wants to return to England but admitted he did not know if it would be possible this summer.
