Leicester City consider a £20m offer for Barcelona attacker Philippe Coutinho, according to a report.

Leicester City are reportedly considering a £20m offer for Barcelona's Philippe Coutinho this summer.

The 28-year-old featured on just 14 occasions for his La Liga club during the 2020-21 campaign, with a serious knee injury keeping him on the sidelines since the end of December.

Coutinho has since undergone two knee operations, but he is now believed to be in the latter stages of his recovery, and the speculation surrounding his future has surfaced once again.

Barcelona are seemingly keen to shift the Brazilian's substantial wages during this summer's transfer window, and Marseille have recently been credited with an interest.

Arsenal and Everton are also thought to be keeping a close eye on developments, but according to Mundo Deportivo, there is also genuine interest from Leicester.

The report claims that the FA Cup holders are eyeing a £20m move for the South American, who played under current Foxes manager Brendan Rodgers at Liverpool.

Coutinho has largely found it difficult to settle at Barcelona since arriving from Liverpool in 2018, but he still has two years left to run on his current deal with the Catalan outfit.
