Coutinho lived in his shadows in Barcelona and was forced out on loan to German Bundesliga outfit Bayern Munich where he made satisfactory performance.

His fate is now unknown because it is unclear his loan deal would be extended with Bayern Munich and he is not expected to return to the Camp Nou.

Former Aston Villa forward Gabriel Agbonlahor has given his view on the situation with Coutinho expressing confidence that he could return to be a Liverpool player but that will only happen with a condition.

Gabriel Agbonlahor stated that Coutinho must apologize to the club and the fans, expressing confidence that he would be forgiven and allowed to return.

While manager Jurgen Klopp is keen to add depth to his squad, Gabriel Agbonlahor stated that Coutinho is the player Liverpool needs at the moment to help strengthen their squad.

According to him, buying a player like Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang cannot help the Liverpool team because they already have proven goal scorers but noted that Coutinho will help complement the likes of Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Firmino.

Alexis Sanchez

It is feared that the fate of Chile international Alexis Sanchez at Man United could have been decided already ahead of the summer transfer window.

Aaron Ramsey

Emerging reports reveal the possibility of former Arsenal player and Juventus ace Aaron Ramsey returning to the English Premier League in the coming summer transfer window.

Life has not been the same for the Wales international since he left Arsenal on a free deal to join the Italian Serie A giants after his contract expired. His journey with the club has not been smooth. He has not been a regular as expected.

It is, therefore, claimed that Juventus are keen on the signature of Chelsea star Jorginho and are ready to release Aaron Ramsey as bait to have the Italian international.

However, Chelsea are willing to let go of the player for a fee of £25 million which manager Jose Mourinho is ready to meet, according to The Express.

Mikel Arteta

If the emerging analysis of the Arsenal team is anything to go by, then the North London outfit will no longer suffer any defeat until the season ends.

The Gunners have been inconsistent in their results so far this season and manager Mikel Arteta has been struggling to get hold of the team to get positive and consistent results.

The latest analysis claim that Mikel Arteta has finally gotten the right formation that would accommodate some important players in his squad and that will make his team more formidable.

According to the analysis, the Spanish boss could now continue with the 3-4-2-1 formation that will accommodate Bukayo Saka, Kieran Tierney, and Gabriel Martinelli.

There is no doubt about the form and stability of the trio in the Arsenal team, especially as Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli have just been handed new long deals at the club.

With Kieran Tierney at the back and his mobility, he could easily link up with Saka who will be ahead in the formation while Gabriel Martinelli expects to operate from the left at the front. He would be able to open up for Saka.

It is claimed that the connection between the three players, adding to the quality of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang can go a long way in helping the Arsenal team with more wins.

Jadon Sancho

English Premier League outfit Man United are still struggling to agree on a deal for German Bundesliga outfit Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho ahead of the summer transfer window.

What has been a hindrance to the deal is the asking price of £100 million tabled by Dortmund, which the Red Devils are unwilling to meet. The Coronavirus pandemic has affected most clubs and United are not an exemption. They are only willing to pay £50 million for Jadon Sancho.

Should both parties fail to agree on a deal, it is reported that Man United will turn their attention on Barcelona flop Ousmane Dembele as an option because he would be available in the summer transfer window and for a cheap fee.

Ousmane Dembele has not enjoyed his stay at the Camp Nou since he joined the team. He has been in and out as a result of his poor form and the injuries he sustained.

Reports are that the Spanish outfit are ready to part ways with the forward and are willing to listen to offers. Man United will find Ousmane Dembele as an option for the England international.

Jadon Sancho has been in fine form, having scored 17 goals and handed 16 assists in 32 appearances for his Bundesliga team.
