Philippe Coutinho to Join Arsenal in January 2022


Philippe Coutinho is a step From Transfer to Arsenal From Barcelona

According to a source, Barcelona has assured Philippe Coutinho’s representation that they will try to complete a January deal with Arsenal.

When he moved from Liverpool to Barcelona in January 2018, the Brazilian created headlines all around Europe. Despite arriving in Spain for a club-record sum, his time there has not been fruitful.
Coutinho’s goal contributions dried up after an excellent half-season in the 2017/18 season. In addition, injuries have hampered his progress, and he spent a season on loan at Bayern Munich.

He has remained with Barcelona this season, however he has only scored two goals in 12 La Liga games. Coutinho has also been absent from the last two such games.

Throughout this time, he has been linked with a return to the Premier League.

Coutinho’s representatives have recently spoken with Arsenal, Tottenham, Everton, and Newcastle, according to Sport. Barcelona is willing to let him go on another loan in January, but will not sell him.

Coutinho, meanwhile, is said to favor a move to Arsenal. His agents made an offer to the Gunners ‘weeks ago,’ according to the source, but Arsenal had’suspicions’ about the agreement.

Barcelona, on the other hand, is said to have issued assurances to Coutinho’s representatives. They’ve stated that they’ll provide ‘all kinds of amenities’ to ensure the sale goes through.

Mikel Arteta Assures Coutinho a Place in his Sqaud

Barcelona is prioritizing the departures of midfielder Samuel Umtiti and defender Samuel Umtiti, according to Sport. The La Liga club can open the path for further new recruits after Ferran Torres if those transactions are completed.

Mikel Arteta, Arsenal’s manager, is said to have said a resounding ‘yes’ to a move for Coutinho.

While Coutinho’s feelings on a move to Tottenham or Everton are uncertain, he is said to have ruled out a move to Newcastle.

According to Sport, the 29-year-old does not yet fully believe in the club’s relegation-fighting project.
