Former Liverpool star is still high on Arsenal’s transfer wishlist

Philippe Coutinho remains high on Arsenal’s transfer wishlist, according to Todofichajes.

The former Liverpool midfielder is one of the players Barcelona hopes to offload soon as they look to raise more funds for new players.

He has largely struggled since he moved to Spain, but he was one of the best players in the Premier League when he played for the Reds.

A return to the competition could revive his career and the report maintains Mikel Arteta wants to take a chance on him.

The report says Everton was looking to also bring him back to England, but the Toffees cannot afford him, leaving Arsenal as his main suitor.

Just Arsenal Opinion

The current Arsenal team would benefit from an experienced attacking midfielder, especially one that has thrived in the Premier League before.

However, Coutinho is simply past his best and the Brazilian isn’t a player we should look to sign.

He might come back and do well, but this Arsenal team has an abundance of midfield talent and we should only add players who can take the team to the next level into the squad.

Coutinho has won every major club trophy in the game and would hardly have the hunger to help us.

  1. Why in the world would Arsenal want to bring in the definition of deadwood? Purely Barca spamming media to drum up any interest whatsoever for this dead carthorse.

    Another attacking midfielder when ESR and Odegaard need all the game time they can get?

    This rumor worse than the Benzema one, and longer living. This one is the Dracula of rumors that simply won’t die.

    Calling Coutinho garbage is an insult to trash bins.

      1. Jon, you need to tone down your self righteous act as it really is becoming a bit much on this site.

        You are often the instigator with your poor demeanor towards others of opposing views. A true keyboard warrior.

        Besides from that you do offer valuable opinions, and provide a different perspectives worth reading. However, your demeanor takes away from your often thought provoking arguments/insights.

        For someone that claims to be so intelligent, superior and of an older generation, one would think your EQ should be higher.

        We are all not perfect so maybe that is something you need to work on.

  2. No. Go buy Zakaria, contract is up in the summer so can get him alot cheaper now, is Xhakas international team mate (&he is staying put also), plus can slot straight in for the absent Thomas with Lokonga challenging.

    Midfield base needs looked at as the attacking side of it in SmithRowe & Ødegaard are doing just fine so no to Philip Coutinho.

    Eddie & now Laca have confirmed they are both leaving come the end of the season, with Auba ghosted from the Emirates and also on the move we need to make moves for a striker in January.

    Try and sell Eddie & Auba for some money or player exchange. Keep laca until then end of the sesson as he mixes with the young guns perfectly (id offer him the 2yr deal) and is showing the sides of a striker we sre missing. Add an out and out goal scorer to that and we have an attacking force.

  3. Although I will always see him as one of the best playmakers “when he was at Liverpool ofc”. Yet, I don’t think we should even consider him while Ode and ESR are around and giving their best, just check the stats and you will understand that bringing Coutinho might be a “bad” investment for the club.

  4. Don’t they realize that Arsenal is no longer the Dump yard for these old players that have passed their best. Sorry Coutinho, you don’t fit the bill for the rebuild process. As for Dennis Zakaria, how did you arrive at a wage demand of 150,000 pounds weekly, are you really serious or is this a joke. Anyway, please be informed that there are no more hospital beds at Arsenal. Yes,Arsenal must buy a quality defensive and or a quality central midfielder, but, not Coutinho and Zakaria please. Arsenal should seriously consider Boubacar Kamara, Dominik Szoboszlai and Renato Sanches and must buy one of them instead.
