Arsenal is readying a summer offer for rejuvenated midfielder

Arsenal is looking to hijack Aston Villa’s transfer for former Liverpool star, Philippe Coutinho.

The Brazilian is on loan at Villa from Barcelona for the rest of this season.

His return to the Premier League has rejuvenated him and he is now one of the best players in the competition again.

Villa can make his transfer permanent for a fee at the end of this campaign.

However, the Spanish news outlet, Sport, claims Arsenal is now preparing an offer for him.

The Gunners had been linked with a move for him repeatedly during the early days of Mikel Arteta’s time as the club’s manager.

They could now add him to their squad, but the report maintains that Villa has the first option to sign him.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Coutinho is a solid talent and he will almost guarantee an improvement in our performance if he moves to the Emirates.

In a Villa side that is levels below Arsenal, he has been proving his worth and will do even more at a better club like the Gunners.

Martin Odegaard and Emile Smith Rowe have been fantastic for us in this campaign, but they could get even better playing alongside the Brazilian.

  1. No thanks, hard pass. He was silenced against us, and had very little impact.

    This silly rumor has more shelf life than that old Benzema chestnut. He can stay at Villa, return to Barca, anywhere but Arsenal.

    1. True true don’t need Couthino, Arsenal must cease from being some sort of Golden age home for past over paid player who have last past there best days

      This rumor don’t worth the paper it is printed on.

  2. Not buying this one at all . He is getting old, is talented but not consiStently effective and I sincerely believe the bad old days of buying older players whose best days are now behind them are no longer club policy. It will not be happening IMO.
    understnd JA’ s constant need to promote rumours, however unlikely, but I reckon wise Gooners will treat this rumour as many of us did the BENZEMA ONES;
    Some rumours ,in fact most of them , are like vampires; undead but nor are they alive . FANTASY FOR THE MASSES!

    1. True.
      If we are sticking to our strategy, which I sincerely hope, there is no way a player with this profile, would be a target.

  3. We would rather go all out for a prolific stiker rather than going for yet another midfielder.
    We need striker, striker and striker please.

  4. Arsenal have learned from the past experiences of buying old players. Sorry, Arsenal don’t need him. He doesn’t fit the profile with his age and lack of pace. Please try to write about things that make sense ,rather than this nonsense.
