Philippe Coutinho used to play very successfully in the Liverpool shirt . In 2018, Coutinho moved to Barcelona for a transfer fee of up to 146 million pounds. However, the Brazilian player did not succeed in the Catalan team.

Coutinho has scored 28 goals in 105 games for Barcelona. In the 2019/20 season, this player played for Bayern Munich on loan and with this team won the Champions League, Bundesliga and German Cup under Hansi Flick.

This season, Coutinho has appeared 16 times in all competitions. The contract between Coutinho and Barcelona runs until 2023.

Recently, Barcelona signed Torres from Man City but have not been able to use this player because of the salary limit. Therefore, this team is ready to let Coutinho leave in the winter transfer window.

Coutinho himself also wants to return to play in England. Currently, there are 6 Premier League teams that want to get the signature of this player, the most prominent of which is Aston Villa.

The current manager of Aston Villa is Steven Gerrard , who played with Coutinho in a Liverpool shirt. Aston Villa will have to compete fiercely with the ’emerging rich guy’ Newcastle. Coutinho’s towering salary is also an obstacle for teams that want to approach the player.
Besides, Aston Villa are interested in highly rated Scottish defender, Aaron Hickey. This 19-year-old left-back is playing in Serie A, having 4 goals in 19 games. This young talent once impressed in the Scottish league, where Steven Gerrard led the old team Rangers.
