Philippe Coutinho trains with Barcelona squad

The Bundesliga champions are looking to add to their squad in order to ward off the challenge of Borussia Dortmund in the league as they aim for their sixth Champions League.
Bayern have already added the likes of Lucas Hernandez, Benjamin Pavard and Ivan Perisic to their ranks but may not be finished there.
Brazil international Philippe Coutinho could be the next player to make the switch to the Allianz arena with the Bavarian giants heavily linked with a move for the midfielder.
Spanish publication Mundo Deportivo are reporting that Bayern have proposed a deal for Coutinho similar to the one they made with Real Madrid for the services of James Rodriguez in 2017.
The proposal is said to be for a two-year loan deal with no obligation to buy, which is essentially the same deal Bayern struck with Real two years ago when the Spanish giants wanted to offload James but no team was willing to offer a permanent transfer.
