The agent of Philippe Coutinho insists that there have been no concrete offers for the Barcelona midfielder so far, despite speculation linking him to the Premier League.

Philippe Coutinho's agent Kia Joorabchian has revealed that there have been no formal approaches for the Barcelona midfielder so far.

The Brazilian is currently on loan at Bayern Munich, but the German champions are not expected to make the move permanent and Barca boss Quique Setien is understood to view him as surplus to requirements at Camp Nou.

Coutinho has been heavily linked with a move back to the Premier League as a result, with Chelsea, Newcastle United and Everton all touted as possible destinations, but Joorabchian insists that there have been no talks over his future yet.

"At the moment, we have not spoken to anybody about any deals whatsoever," he told talkSPORT.

"I think at the moment everyone's concentration is regarding this pandemic and how football can restart the season in a secure environment and over the health and safety of everybody.

"I think the transfer side of things and where he will go or where people will go will come into play down the line when things have got back to some sort of normality."

Coutinho has scored nine goals and created eight more in 32 appearances for Bayern so far this season.
