Premier League giants Arsenal have surprisingly been linked with a loan move for Barcelona playmaker Philippe Coutinho according to the latest reports emanating from the Spanish media.
Coutinho has been linked with a move away from Barcelona after the Brazilian international failed to settle at the Nou Camp following his expensive move from Liverpool.
According to Sport, Arsenal director Raul Sanllehi has a good relationship with Barcelona and a discussion over Philippe Coutinho is set for Sunday.
Barcelona and Arsenal will meet for the annual Joan Gamper trophy at the weekend.
Coutinho left Liverpool for Spanish La Liga champions Barcelona at the start of last year in a deal reported to be around £142m thus making him the third most expensive footballer in world football.
The 27-year-old has not been able to live up to his hefty price tag at Barcelona and he could leave the club this summer.
He has been linked with a lot of clubs from French Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint Germain (PSG) to former club Liverpool to Manchester United.
Philippe Coutinho is presently on holiday after his exertions with the Brazilian national team.
Coutinho was part of the Brazil squad that won the 2019 COPA America tournament on home soil.
