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