Barcelona playmaker Philippe Coutinho has no interest in joining Premier League giants Arsenal on loan for the new season according to the latest Spanish media reports.
Philippe Coutinho has been linked with a lot of clubs this summer including Manchester United though it must be pointed out that the transfer rumours to Arsenal have been prevalent in the last few days.
According to the publication from popular Spanish media outlet Mundo Deportivo, Philippe Coutinho is not interested in a loan move to Arsenal.
His priority is to remain at Barcelona for at least one season despite the competition for places, especially in the attacking areas.

Competition for the attacking spots increased at Barcelona earlier this summer following the signing of Antoine Griezmann from fellow Spanish La Liga outfit Atletico Madrid.
Barcelona activated the €120m (£107m) in his then contract at Atletico Madrid to secure his signing.
Spanish champions Barcelona want to sell Philippe Coutinho and are even ready to take a hit on the £142m transfer fee spent on him during the 2018 winter transfer window.
The Catalans are also open to a loan move for the Brazilian international player as long as they receive a loan fee of €30m (£27m) for him.
