North London club, Arsenal are not giving up on their interest in Barcelona outcast Philippe Coutinho ahead of the coming season with their chances getting brighter by the day.

Philippe Coutinho seems not to be needed at the Spanish giant anymore which makes a move inevitable. The English Premier League outfit, Arsenal are willing to give Philippe Coutinho a way out and have included Matteo Guendouzi in the deal.

The Brazilian international has been on loan at the German Bundesliga with Bayern Munich but it’s obvious he would not be kept at the club on a permanent deal.

The latest report now claims Philippe Coutinho is interested in the move to Arsenal and is willing to make it happen. The report adds that the Barcelona player is willing to take a pay cut to ensure his move to the Emirates Stadium.

However, the North London outfit will be made to pay a certain fee despite including Matteo Guendouzi in the deal and that has to be negotiated between the two clubs before a deal can take place.

Meanwhile, manager Mikel Arteta will be banking on the Arsenal management to hand him financial support to continue with the rebuilding process of the club.
