Spanish La Liga giants Barcelona are reportedly eyeing some players from Lyon thus putting the future of Brazilian playmaker Philippe Coutinho at the club in doubt.

Coutinho, 26, has not really performed as expected since his multi-million pound move from Premier League giants Liverpool in the penultimate transfer window in January.

According to the publication from Teamtalk, Barcelona will run the rule over three players from French side Lyon when both sides meet in both the first and second legs of the Champions League in February 2019 and March 2019 respectively.

It was revealed that the Catalan club will checkout the Lyon trio of Nabil Fekir, Tanguy Ndombele and Houssem Aouar.

Ironically, Liverpool were close to signing Nabil Fekir in the summer as a replacement for the departed Coutinho but the Reds pulled the plug on the deal due to concerns over his knee.

Liverpool had to settle for a cheaper option in Xerdan Shaqiri and the Swiss international player has delivered for the Merseyside giants since he became a Red this summer.

Nabil Fekir could go on to replace Coutinho at Barcelona.

The Brazilian became the fourth most expensive player in the history of world football when the Blaugrana paid £142m to prise him away from Liverpool.
