Arsenal boost as Brazilian ace becomes available for transfer

Arsenal has been handed a boost in their bid to sign a new attacking midfielder this summer as it has now been revealed that Philippe Coutinho has been made available for transfer.

The Brazilian left Liverpool for Barcelona in 2018, but his time with the Spanish side has been plagued by injuries and poor form.

The Catalans have found his transfer quite expensive for the returns that he is delivering.

He spent last season on loan at Bayern Munich where he won the Champions League, Bundesliga and German Cup.

He was given the vote of confidence by Ronald Koeman when he was made Barca’s manager at the start of this season.

However, Coutinho has hardly featured regularly and he is currently nursing an injury.

The coronavirus pandemic has exposed Barca’s huge financial problems and one reason for it is that they have too many high earners.

They are now looking to offload some and Sky Sports says they are open to selling Coutinho who is also attracting the attention of Everton.

Arsenal might move for him if they fail to land Emi Buendia or Martin Odegaard as they search for a new attacking midfielder.

It would be interesting to see if the former Liverpool man will return to the Premier League.

    Oh no, not the ‘B’ word….

    If we are serious we should sign coutinho straight up

  3. Ba Elkhirsawy says:

    29 years old midfielder with a high salary who barely made it for 10 matches without getting injured. And also a brazilian.
    Perfect deal to replace William but not even for free!

  4. Dan Burcea says:

    Last year, Arsenal preferred Willian to Coutinho! The events went perfectly with Arsenal out from the Big Four.
    With guys like Dani Ceballos, Thomas Partey, Mohamed Elneny, Granit Xhaka, the eighth place will be guaranteed next season.
    You’ve got it made!

    1. Eddie SA says:

      Our position is unlikely to be improved by an aging injury prone player who would come to us as his second option.
      I would say pass on Coutinho.

    Give me a Wijnaldum rather
    Thanks

      Same… He has got energy that we lack in our midfield…

    Another high paycheck mercenary

  7. JW says:

    I believe he is unavailable at the moment because he is having his third knee surgery. Is this what Arsenal needs?
    Still, he is Brazilian, and we know Edu loves over the hill Brazilians, so who knows what will happen.
