Phillipe Coutinho 'Will Join' Everton This Summer For Cut-Price Transfer Fee

Everton shocked many football fans last summer with the impressive signing of World Cup Golden Boot winner James Rodriguez from Real Madrid.

Now it looks like the Toffees are again looking to surprise a few supporters, particularly some that are very close to home.

Liverpool supporters might not be best pleased this morning to find that former Anfield favourite Philippe Coutinho is being strongly linked with a return to the Premier League with their neighbours.

According to The Sun, the Blues are already house-hunting for the Brazil international, as they are so sure that he will be arriving on Merseyside this summer.

What's more, Carlo Ancelotti and co. could be getting Coutinho for £35 million, just three-and-a-half seasons after he moved to Barcelona for £145 million.

The 28-year-old has been finding it more difficult than expected since his move to the Nou Camp in 2018, although earlier this season it had seemed like he was getting more regular football under new manager Ronald Koeman.

However, a knee injury has put an end to that, with Everton keen to make sure the former Liverpool man has fully recovered from that setback before splashing out on him.

Liverpool had also been linked with a move for their former player, but it now seems that they have beaten to it by their fierce rivals.

This will be extra disappointing for Reds fans, who have been watching their team struggle to find the back of the net regularly - and could have done with the return of the guy who scored and assisted 78 goals in 152 Premier League appearances for them.
