After turning down the chance to join Tottenham on loan, Bavaria has now emerged as the latest possible destination for the unsettled playmaker

Bayern Munich remain interested in acquiring Philippe Coutinho in the current transfer window but no deal has yet been struck with Barcelona, a spokesman for the Catalans explained on Tuesday.

"There is interest from FC Bayern, but there is no agreement. That is all there is to say at the moment," the Barca spokesman told Goal and Spox when consulted over reports linking Coutinho to Bavaria.

The Bundesliga champions, however, are by no means the only club targeted by those in charge at Camp Nou as they look to cut their losses on Coutinho.

Paris Saint-Germain too are in the running, with Barca preparing a blockbuster deal that would see the Brazilian move to Parc des Princes this summer.

Club sources previously confirmed to Goal that Coutinho had been included in the offer prepared to take his compatriot Neymar back to Catalunya.

As well as the playmaker, PSG would be set to receive roughly €100 million (£93m/$104m) in fees for their wantaway forward.

Eric Abidal led a delegation of Barca representatives in travelling to the French capital, where they plan to meet with their PSG counterparts and smooth over relations following an acrimonious summer spat revolving around Neymar and his future.
