Everton are working to bring FC Barcelona midfielder, Philippe Coutinho, back to the Premier League.

Coutinho has rarely hit the heights at Barcelona who has loaned him before and it is believed that the club is trying to offload him permanently as they seek to cut him off from their wage bill.

Mundo Deportivo vi The Express reports that the Brazilian is now the highest earner at the club ever since the likes of Luis Suarez, Antoine Griezmann and Lionel Messi departed the club with the club keen to offload him in January as they consider him surplus to requirements.

The reports state that Everton are working to give the player an escape route out of Camp Nou and while Coutinho’s agent ahs never hidden his clients wish to return to the Premier League, it remains to be seen if he will move to Goodison Park having featured for Liverpool before.

But with manager Rafa Benitez having represented the arch-rivals, a move for Coutinho cant be far-fetched as the Toffees look for a midfielder to boost their attacking options.

Newcastle United were the other teams said to have had shown interest in the player but their position in the league is something said to be a worry for the player.
