Philippe Coutinho

Spanish La Liga champions Barcelona have reportedly given Premier League giants Arsenal just one condition for them to sign playmaker Philippe Coutinho on loan this summer.

According to Catalunya Radio, Barcelona have told Arsenal to pay around €25m-30m for Philippe Coutinho.

That’s the loan fee required by Barcelona for Philippe Coutinho and it represents the amortization fee expected by Liverpool following the transfer of the player to the Spanish champions at the start of last year.

Philippe Coutinho joined Barcelona in a £142m deal during the 2018 winter transfer window.

The 27-year-old left Liverpool for Barcelona in a controversial manner after practically forcing the transfer and he has regretted that decision following his inability to live up to his hefty price tag at the Nou Camp.

Despite performing below expectations, Philippe Coutinho has won two successive league titles and the 2018 Copa Del Rey title during his time at the club.

Barcelona have strengthened their attack this summer with the €120m signing of French World Cup winner Antoine Griezmann.

The Griezmann transfer has pushed Philippe Coutinho further down the pecking order and a move away from the Spanish La Liga club would be a good idea for the talented Brazilian international playmaker.
