La Liga expert Euan McTear believes Philippe Coutinho would be interested in joining Leicester City despite the Foxes being unable to offer Champions League football.
Coutinho’s current club, Barcelona, are desperately trying to offload fringe players after exceeding La Liga’s wage limit.
Should Leicester City sign Philippe Coutinho?
Coutinho has had a tough spell at the Nou Camp, having joined from Liverpool for £142million in 2018, with a loss of form and injuries causing havoc.
The 29-year-old has made just 90 appearances since making the move to Barcelona.
Wolverhampton Wanderers have been tipped by the bookies (via Birmingham Mail) to make a surprise move, but McTear feels Coutinho would be keen to reunite with Brendan Rodgers having already worked under the Northern Irishman at Anfield.
Speaking exclusively to TIF, McTear said: “They’ve not historically been a top-six club but, if you look at the last two seasons, Leicester are a top-six club.
“They’ve just won the FA Cup and are still not getting in the Champions League, but I think they’re so close. They’re so attractive for players.”
