Coutinho is heavily linked with leaving Barcelona in the ongoing window and he is keen on a return to the Premier League, where he still enjoys admirers.
Steven Gerrard’s Aston Villa are looking to snap him up on an initial loan deal and are locked in talks with Barcelona.
However, Aston Villa could face competition from other Premier League clubs for Coutinho’s signature and the jury is out on whether they can push an agreement over the line.
Liverpool and Tottenham have both been linked with Coutinho, but in a boost for Villa, neither want the Brazilian.
Spurs are looking to bolster their squad in the ongoing window but Coutinho is not among the targets they are pursuing.
Liverpool are also not interested in signing the 29-year-old again, despite his stellar spell at Anfield.
Coutinho wants to play regular football and is seeking another spell in the English top flight, and it remains to be seen if it will happen at Villa Park.
