Everton favourites to sign ex-Liverpool ace Philippe Coutinho, say bookies

EVERTON are the bookies' favourites to be Philippe Coutinho's next club as he is expected to leave Barcelona.

Barca are under pressure to sell players and lower their wage bill after signing Ferran Torres from Man City before agreeing terms with Alvaro Morata.

Betfair have Everton as 4/1 favourites to sign Coutinho as we are just days into the January transfer window.

Everton are seeking to bolster their squad as they look to avoid getting involved in a relegation scrap in the second half of the season.

Coutinho has accepted that he needs to move on in January in order to revive his career.

Barca signed the attacking midfielder from Liverpool for a whopping £145million in 2018.

With Barcelona desperate for cash they would be open to thrashing out a deal, as his alleged £370,000-a-week contract expires in 2023.

Newcastle are second favourites at 6/1 as the 29-year-old could be the owner's first marquee signing since taking over.

Everton and Newcastle both lead Tottenham (8/1) and Manchester United (16/1) in the bookies' market.
