Latest comments from Arsenal target give big indication about his future

Philippe Coutinho is one of the players that have been linked with a move to Arsenal in this transfer window (Football London).

The Brazilian has struggled since he left Liverpool for Barcelona in 2018, however, he recently won the Champions League with Bayern Munich and he was in fine form for the Germans which saw him net twice against his parent club.

He has now returned to Catalonia where he will hope he features in the plans of a new manager, Ronald Koeman.

Arsenal is struggling with creativity in their midfield as Mesut Ozil seems to have gone past his best.

The Gunners had Dani Ceballos on loan last season, however, the Spaniard has returned to Real Madrid and Coutinho can bring the creative spark that Mikel Arteta is looking for.

The Brazilian, however, spoke about his future shortly after winning the Champions League with Bayern Munich and he reiterated his desire to return and play for Barcelona because they are his dream club.

“I am overjoyed with this title. It was my last game in this jersey,” Coutinho said via Sport Bild.

“I will work to ensure that I can do things that haven’t happened before next season.

“I am returning to Barcelona with a lot of enthusiasm. It was always the club I dreamed of playing for.”

I think those comments put to bed any chance of the Brazilian signing for Arsenal.

    Good now we know where we stand… Our hunt for a younger hungrier AM continues.
    Ceballos and Auba contract renewal in hiatus…
    Signing our No 1 target(TP) is looking increasingly impossible this transfer window
    When will Gabriel become an Arsenal player?
    We still haven’t made a single sale of the deadwoods.
    Is Elneny staying? What’s the deal with Guendouzi? Etc…. So many questions so little answers…

    Arsenal`s bug is still with them and it won`t go away. They simply can`t close a deal. Like many others I have a great deal of respect for Arteta and Edu and had great expectations of the two. BUT!, here we go again. We`ve had a change at the helm
    but the bug is still with us and it`s Liverpool this weekend. We can`t even think of how the team will line up. OK Mikel, surprise us.

    I can only agree with Blue17 and my countryman Aussie Jack, the inability of Arsenal to buy and sell players in a competent manner. Why are Chelsea down the road able to quickly bring in 4 players with minimal fuss?
    I am happy Coutinho is not coming to Arsenal, due to the low value/cost ratio.

    1. ClassyGunner says:

      I am also delighted that he is not coming. Never wanted him.

    Chelsea has cash and Arsenal don’t have a lot of cash.

    Chelsea can throw cash at a club and the deal is quickly sorted. Arsenal have to negatiate structured deals, player swaps and negotiate price and that makes things take forever
