Coutinho to join Iwobi at Everton

Former Liverpool midfielder Philippe Coutinho is set to become teammates with Nigeria’s Alex Iwobi with the Brazilian poised to join Everton this summer in a £35million deal, The Sun reports.

According to the publication, the Toffees are already house-hunting for the out of favour playmaker.

It is understood that manager Carlo Ancelotti wants Coutinho to form a South American dream team with Colombian James Rodriguez and Brazil forward Richarlison.

The 28-year-old has been a massive flop since leaving Anfield for Catalonia for £145m.

Barca tried to sell him 18 months later but he ended up on loan at Bayern Munich – where he won the treble but was hit by injuries that cost him a permanent move to the Bundesliga.

He then made 14 appearances on his return to the Nou Camp,  but has not played since late December thanks to a knee injury.

He had surgery at the start of this month and will not play again this season.

Everton want to be sure he has recovered fully before committing, but a deal is thought to have been agreed on paper.
