Agent looking to make Arsenal deal for Barcelona outcast happen

Arsenal fan and Philippe Coutinho’s agent, Kia Joorabchian, is looking to get the former Liverpool man on the books of Arsenal this summer, according to Mirror Sports.

Coutinho has been unsettled since he left Liverpool to join Barcelona and the Brazilian has been shipped out on loan to Bayern Munich this season.

Despite his occasional fine performances in Bavaria, Bayern has decided against extending his deal and he will be returning to Catalonia in the summer.

Barcelona, however, has given up on the midfielder and they are keen to ship him out on loan again in the summer.

They have been turned down by Italian sides and they have now turned their attention to the Premier League claims the Mirror.

Joorabchian has a fine relationship with the Arsenal hierarchy and he will look to exploit his links to the Emirates and get a deal done.

The problem is that Arsenal would struggle to meet Barcelona’s asking price for the Brazilian, but if that is resolved, he would be a fine addition to Arteta’s team.

Arsenal is struggling with creativity at the moment after Arteta froze Mesut Ozil out of his team.

They will most likely lose Dani Ceballos in the summer and his departure would create a huge void in the Arsenal team.

    I agree with your analysis that is the way to go!!!

    Joorabchian’s “fine” relationship with Arsenal has already given us David Luiz and Cedric Soares (he’s their agent and I think he might also be Raul’s agent too). Sounds like we will be getting another one of his cast offs that no one else wants or can afford.

      He is definitely Edu’s agent and I agree, no more cast offs please.

        Thanks SueP, you are correct, he is Edu’s agent, not Raul’s.

    Yeh we desperately need to cut ties with this Joorabchian, he is no good for the club and shouldn’t hold so much sway over contracts and transfers.

    Regarding Coutinho, he might thrive again in the PL and we do really need some creativity, but he’s not performing at the moment and his fee and wages will be astronomical. Could just turn in to another Ozil.

    Jack Grealish, Coutinho, Upamecano and, Wilfred Ndidi. I believe Arsenal will go beyond europa and top 6 and definitely hold a top four spot… Even if we lose auba. I’d advise throwing in Ajax left back and their goalkeeper Onana.

    Are you kidding me? One really good game all season!

    Weird days when Barcelona doesn’t really have many players you’d actually want. Even their backup squad used to be full of quality. But if it’s not any of their starters I wouldn’t really be bothered right now.
