Arsenal to sign Philippe Coutinho

Chelsea headhunt Coutinho


Chelsea are considering a loan deal to sign Philippe Coutinho as an alternative to Jadon Sancho because they fear the Borussia Dortmund winger will join Manchester United, sourc­es have told ESPN.

Sancho, 20, is expected to leave Dortmund this summer in a deal worth more than £100 million and Chelsea have been monitoring his situation for months with a view to making an offer.

However, sources have told ESPN that senior figures at Stamford Bridge believe Unit­ed are winning the race to sign Sancho, and while they have not entirely given up hope, other alternatives are now being discussed.

Coutinho, 27, is one such option. He is on loan at Bay­ern Munich from parent club Barcelona.

The Bundesliga side are unwilling to meet a £97m buyout clause they agreed for Coutinho, who is already planning for life away from the club with his agent Kia Joorabchian sounding out possible suit­ors.
