Chelsea are weighing up a move for Bayern Munich midfielder Philippe Coutinho. Coutinho is currently on-loan at Bayern from Barcelona, though the Germans are rethinking plans of signing him permanently. Mundo Deportivo says should the German giants decide not to, Chelsea are waiting in the wings to snap him up. Chelsea are armed with a war chest of at least £150m - having sold star man Eden Hazard to Real Madrid in July - after their transfer ban was lifted. The Blues have long admired Coutinho and missed out on him this summer thanks to their suspension.
Barca are apparently willing to cut their losses and flog Coutinho for just £85m.
