Chelsea might focus on Barcelona’s Philippe Coutinho after being refused by Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho, according to a report.
Chelsea are supposedly preparing to focus their attention on a summer offer for Barcelona attacker Philippe Coutinho as Borussia Dortmund‘s Jadon Sancho is ‘unwilling’ to sign up with the capital giants.
The Blues are thought to be admirers of Sancho, however Manchester United seem at the head of the line for the England international ahead of this summer’s transfer window.
According to Sport, Frank Lampard‘s side are now prioritising an offer for Coutinho, although ‘there is still a long way to go’ when it pertains to a possible swoop for the Brazil international.
The former Liverpool player has actually mostly had a hard time to show his best form for the Spanish champions given that showing up in the summer of 2018.
Coutinho has actually remained in fairly strong form during a loan spell at Bayern Munich this season, however, scoring 9 times and contributing 8 assists in 32 appearances in all competitions.
Bayern do have the option of signing the 27- year-old on a long-term offer this summer, however the provision is not anticipated to be triggered due to the expense, which is supposedly in the region of ₤100 m.
