Coutinho edges closer to Arsenal move
Out of favor Barcelona player, Philippe Coutinho is reportedly set to join Arsenal on a season-long loan. The player’s agent, Kia Joorabchian, has been given the nod to negotiate a move away from the Catalan side to London.
Coutinho has failed to make his mark in a star-studded Barcelona team that houses the likes of Messi, Suarez, Antoine Griezemann and thus had to ship out to Bavarian giants Bayern Münich for a loan move, which proved largely unsuccessful after the bosses failed to legitimize his loan into a permanent one.
The Catalan outfit for some time now has been looking at possible alternatives to off-load the 28-year-old for a long time now, and it is known that the Brazilian favors a move to the Premier League with Arsenal, Tottenham, and Newcastle all set to be swooping for his signature.
According to reports from SunSet, the player favors a move to the red half of London than his other suitors lined all over Europe.
The summer transfer is yet to open and it won’t be long before we see the Brazilian playmaker donning the colors of a new setup next season.
