Arsenal boost as Barcelona expects to offload ace to the Premier League

Arsenal has been handed a boost in their bid to land Philippe Coutinho this summer with a new report from Spain claiming that Barcelona is confident of him making a Premier League return.

Coutinho joined Barcelona from Liverpool in the winter of 2018 in the middle of the best season of his career. But he has stalled since he made the move away from the Premier League.

He was sent out on-loan to Bayern Munich this season, but the Germans aren’t looking to make his loan deal permanent.

He will also not be welcomed to Barcelona next season as the Catalans have already given up on him ever becoming a top star with their team.

His wage is significant, and they are desperate to get it off their bill in the summer.

Esport3 claims that the Catalans are confident of shipping him out to the Premier League this summer.

Arsenal has been linked with a move for the Brazilian this season (Metro) as Mikel Arteta looks to add more creativity to his team.

Barcelona’s asking price would, however, price Arsenal out of a move for him.

However, with the Catalans desperate to offload him, the Gunners could get a fair deal including landing him on loan on subsidised wages.

    The moment you mentioned about the wages, I knew Arsenal and Coutinho will never be.
    Businesses are coming out of Lockdown. And Arsenal has always been frugal even in the absence of such hardtimes. Coutinho though would be a perfect fit in Artetas system.

    No thanks! We don’t want another Ozil on our hands. Obviously he’s a big upgrade on Ozil, but he’s not a fighter, and that’s what we badly need. Determination, work ethic, aggression, are attributes we need more of at Arsenal, and Coutinho ticks none of those boxes.

    Any other time I would take him, but not at the moment.
