Premier League clubs are keen on taking the Barcelona man back to England

Philippe Coutinho still have a good reputation in the Premier League. As the wait goes on for his future at Bayern Munich to be cleared up, where he's on loan from Barcelona, a number of suitors are emerging in England. 

Apart from Liverpool, who Barça signed Coutinho from in a club-record 160 million euro deal, Manchester United and Leicester City are among the clubs keen on the Brazil star. 

Despite his Anfield past, United would not be against signing Coutinho, although the January arrival of Bruno Fernandes, who has hit the ground running at Old Trafford, could complicate things. 

Tottenham, who tried to sign Coutinho last summer, are also keen, as are Leicester. However, it's unlikely the Foxes, Premier League champions in 2016, would be able to convince the Brazilian to join them. 

However, the Leicester manager, Brendan Rodgers, knows Coutinho well having worked with him at Liverpool. But he knows his side won't be able to compete for the midfielder unless it's a loan deal.
