Euro Paper Talk: Coutinho expects Chelsea to beat Liverpool to €60m target

Philippe Coutinho believes a Barcelona teammate is heading for a big-money Premier League transfer this summer, while Arsenal are plotting a raid for a €40m-rated Sevilla star, according to Tuesday’s European papers.




COUTINHO KNOWS DESTINATION OF JASPER CILLESSEN

Former Liverpool star Philippe Coutinho expects his Barcelona teammate to move to the Premier League this summer – with Chelsea his likely destination.

The Holland goalkeeper has a €60m get-out clause in his Nou Camp deal and has been strongly linked with a move to his former club Liverpool, who are actively looking for a new No 1.

But with Liverpool still hopeful of a deal for Roma star Alisson, Chelsea look to have nipped in for Cillessen, with the Dutchman likely to replace the departing Thibaut Courtois in goals next season.

Courtois has told Chelsea he is unwilling to sign a new deal this summer and with just a year left on his Stamford Bridge deal, looks set to be sold on to the highest bidder.

Now Spanish outlet Don Balon claims Coutinho has let the cat out of the bag to teammate Lionel Messi that Cillessen will make the switch to London this summer to become the Blues’ No 1 and the long-term replacement for Courtois.
