Chelsea have received a boost in their pursuit of Philippe Coutinho as the player’s agent Kia Joorabchian says “everything is possible” regarding a potential move to Stamford Bridge.
Coutinho has flopped since his £142million move to Barcelona from Liverpool in January 2018.

Joorabchian has strong links to Chelsea as he also represents Willian and former players David Luiz and Oscar.
Willian is out of contract at the end of the season and the agent provided an update on where they are at.
“There is a lot of speculation, but I can really explain to you that we have not talked about transitions or anything like that,” he explained.
“No one has the right feeling. Neither we nor the other side have the feeling to discuss something when so much is happening around the world.”
