Premier League giants Arsenal are reportedly interested in the signing of Brazilian footballer Philippe Coutinho and he could make the move the Emirates stadium this summer.
Arsenal have started their campaign this season on a brighter note winning their first two games and they have been tipped to fight for the League title this term.
Last season, Arsenal failed to finish among the top four in the Premier League, but the Gunners won the FA Cup title which gave them the ticket to play in the Europa League.
Mikel Arteta who is the manager of the North London side is still interested in bolstering his squad before the close of the transfer window.
Philippe Coutinho played for Bayern Munich last season on loan from Barcelona and won the Champions League with the German champions.
According to the report by Sport, Arsenal chiefs will be willing to sign Philippe Coutinho on loan from Barcelona until the end of the season.
Should Coutinho join Arsenal, it will ultimately signal the end of Mesut Ozil who has once again been frozen out of the side this term at the Emirates.
After failing to make the squad for Arsenal's 2-0 win against Leicester in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday, September 23, Mikel Arteta said he is picking best players for his squad.
Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Philippe Coutinho was handed a second chance by Barcelona new boss Ronald Koeman and reports from Spain have it that the Brazilian will now play as a central midfielder for the club.
The forward who was on loan at Bayern Munich last season has ruled out another loan deal and he is poised to return to the Camp Nou side.
Koeman wants to retain the 28-year-old who scored two goals against Barcelona when the Bundesliga side walloped the Catalans 8-2 to knock them out of the Champions League.
It is however gathered that the Blaugrana will only sell the player if substantial amount is tendered as a bid for the 28-year-old.
Spanish outlet Marca is reporting that as a result of the pandemic, there is little or no chance that any club will come forward with a substantial figure for the player.
