Coutinho agent set for Barcelona summit; will push for England move

The agent of Philippe Coutinho is set to meet with Barcelona next week.

Mundo Deportivo says Kia Joorabchian is scheduled to meet with Barca directors in the coming days.

On the agenda will be Coutinho's future, with a move to England the most likely option for the current on-loan Bayern Munich midfielder.

Indeed, Joorabchian will make it clear that Coutinho wishes to return to the Premier League for next season.

Chelsea, Tottenham and Newcastle United are all in contact with Joorabchian, with the English trio banking on Barca releasing Coutinho for a new loan next season.

Next week's meeting is expected to produce a path forward for all parties to secure the former Liverpool star a return to the Premier League.
