The 28-year-old, who is one of 12 players on Barca's reported transfer list, has always been linked with a return to Liverpool, but it is believed that the likes of Arsenal and Chelsea are more inclined to make an offer for his services next season.

The report goes on to reveal that Coutinho would really like to secure a return to Liverpool FC this summer but the Premier League champions are unlikely to re-sign their former number 10.

"It's no secret he wants to come back to the Premier League", Joorabchian was quoted as saying by talkSPORT.

"His best option could be returning to English football where he spent the best seasons of his career and in which his qualities seem to be best suited, as he proved at Liverpool when was one of the best players in the Premier League".

"Because the Champions League is going to run all the way until August 23, I think it will be hard for players like Coutinho to make any commitment or move until that date", Joorabchian told talkSPORT on Tuesday.

Philippe Coutinho is preparing for Bayern Munich's Champions League tie with Chelsea after having extended his loan with the Bavarian club for an additional two months, yet doubts continue to surround the Brazilian with regards to his longer-term future.

However, due to the pushed back dates of the transfer window and the Champions League, Joorabchian said it may take some time for a deal to be made.

"Because the Champions League will run until August 23, it will be hard for players like Coutinho to make any commitments or moves pre that date", Joorabchian said. And then he has got to play Barcelona, believe it or not. He is not at all against staying at Barcelona'.

This period Coutinho scored 9 ambitions and provided 8 assists for Bayern in 34 appearances across all competitions. He added that the player also has a couple of offers from Europe and that his future will be resolved after the FA Cup final on August 1st.
