Transfer: Arsenal joins race to sign Coutinho



Arsenal are reportedly preparing to begin talks with Philippe Coutinho’s agent, Kia Joorabchian, over a deal which will see the midfielder move from Barcelona, according to reports.

The Brazil international has spent the season on loan at Bayern Munich.

However, the German champions are unwilling to make the deal permanent for €120 million (£105m).

The Spanish Champions are looking to offload several players this summer in order to raise funds for their new signings and Coutinho is among those made available.

Chelsea have been heavily linked with a move for Coutinho but according to Le10 Sport, Arsenal has also joined the race to sign the 27-year-old.

The report also claims that Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta is behind the move as he ‘dreams’ of bringing Coutinho to Arsenal and would make the midfielder a focal point in the team.

It’s claimed that Arsenal have made the necessary arrangements to begin negotiations with Joorabchian, although a move for the Brazilian is expected to be costly.
