According to English media, Brazilian midfielder Philippe Coutinho (27) is very close in a transfer to Arsenal.
Coutinho is a Barcelona player but is currently on loan at Bayern.
It is becoming increasingly clear that the Bavarians do not want the 27-year-old in Barcelona either, and also announced that they will not buy his contract.
After only one season Coutinho was sent on loan to Bayern, Barcelona paid Liverpool 120 million euros for the Brazilian master in January 2018. It seems that Barca will once again offer it to someone interested this summer.
In Chelsea, Everton, Tottenham, and Newcastle being mentioned most loudly the Brazilian midfielder has been linked with a number of English clubs in recent months. Now, Arsenal has joined the game, according to the island media.
Being an Arsenal fan Coutinho’s manager Kia Joorabchian has reportedly already spoken to Gunners manager Mikel Arteta.
