English Premier League outfit Arsenal are reported to have opened talks with Barcelona on the possibility of adding Matteo Guendouzi in a deal that will have Brazilian international Coutinho join the Emirates Stadium.

The future of the Brazilian is unknown as he is unsure where his future lies, with his loan deal set to run out with German Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich.

The possibility of his return to Barcelona is very unlikely and he has been linked with a move to the English Premier League with Arsenal as one of the suitors. It is now claimed that the Gunners have taken steps to convince the Spanish giants and are ready to include Matteo Guendouzi in the deal.

Matteo Guendouzi could be having his last season at the Emirates Stadium after he was dropped by manager Mikel Arteta as a result of his antics at Brighton. He is accused of attitude issues and has been asked to train alone, away from the club.

Arsenal could be gifted with a deal for Coutinho, who has been hailed to return to his best in the Premiership, especially as he has had an experience when he was with Liverpool before moving to the Spanish La Liga.
