The agent of Brazilian international Kia Joorabchain has spoken on the reported interest in his client by English Premier League outfit Arsenal ahead of the summer transfer window.

Arsenal are hoping on a swap deal with Matteo Guendouzi to bring back the Brazilian to the English Premier League with his owners, Barcelona seeming to be opened for a deal.

Reports claim the North London outfit will have to pay a certain fee, in addition to Matteo Guendouzi to be able to land the player who is currently on loan with German Bundesliga outfit Bayern Munich.

However, Coutinho’s agent has Arsenal a major boost after claiming that his client is opened to a move to the English Premier League while confirming that genuine interest has been shown for the player.

He, therefore, noted that his player might not make any decision until August 23 when the UEFA Champions League will be rounding up, stressing that the player has to concentrate.

Coutinho is involved with Bayern Munich for the Champions League and that means until they are knocked out, no decision would be made.

The Brazilian international is also being linked with a move to Chelsea, Tottenham, Leicester City, and Newcastle, who are all contenders with the North London outfit.
