Barcelona star considering a move to the Emirates among other interested teams

Arsenal has been named as one of three Premier League teams that might sign Philippe Coutinho this summer.

The Brazilian was one of the best players in the Premier League when he turned out for Liverpool, and he has been unsettled since he left the Premier League for Barcelona.

The Catalans sent him out on loan to the Bundesliga with Bayern Munich this season, and the Germans have decided not to make his loan deal a permanent one.

He is no longer wanted at the Camp Nou and his agent will now look to get him a new team.

Spanish media outlet, Sport, claims that the Brazilian’s agent has been in talks with English sides for some time now.

It claims that Arsenal, Tottenham and Leicester City are the English teams looking to sign him and the midfielder is considering their proposals.

His agent, Kia Joorabchian, is close friends with some Arsenal board members and he was quoted saying:

“We are looking to see if any opportunity arises in the Premier, where he has already triumphed.”.

With Mesut Ozil no longer able to provide the assists that Arsenal needs, the Gunners might enjoy the creativity of Coutinho.

Barcelona reportedly wants a 20 million euros loan fee and whoever takes him on will have to cough up as much as 10 million euros per year in wages.

    30 M for a one year loan. Sounds like real bad business to me. I hope it is just the press inventing things to be honest.

    Barcelona made 2 swaps offers to get Gendouzi:

    Gendouzi for 45M for Couthino. Rejected by our board.

    New offer
    Gendouzi for Rakitic & Vidal.

    If we can miss on couthino while trying to get rid off Mateo for 45M, we in serious shhhht.

    This is the latest playmaker in UK he misses. Of course he will be back to himself in a second; he realized making a mistake to leave EPL, not happy on the field…

    This is nuts! We have plenty useless bankable players to get that money back. Pay Ozil out for free and give him 7M.; save 15M in wages, pay Couthino 8M wage., breaks even.

    This is ridiculous stuff.

    1. Mogunna says:

      Cant blame kroenke, he puts 50M as budget, then it is up to Arteta & board to decide as swaps or loans.

      They showed enough failure this season and in planning next; Luiz as our next season first signing ends it!

      They dong know what da heck they doing.

    Is this not the same super-agent also pushing Arsenal to sign the teenage prospect from Portugal for 40M! And of course we will be forced to pay Coutinho 25O plus per week – after he was rejected by Barcelona and Bayern.
