EPL: Big turn emerge in Arsenal’s chase of Coutinho


Brazilian international, Philippe Coutinho has reportedly been on the wish list of the English Premier League side, Arsenal with claims that he could be heading to England this summer window.

Philippe Coutinho left Liverpool in 2018 to join Barcelona for a world record fee but could not impress and was sent out on loan to German Bundesliga club, Bayern Munich.

His loan spell is set to expire after Bayern Munich’s Champions League outing which makes the future of Philippe Coutinho unknown as they are reportedly not ready to keep him at the club.

Philippe Coutinho’s agent had stated that the player is ready for a move to the English Premier League and expected talks to open immediately after the Champions League.

However, the latest reports have claimed that Philippe Coutinho could be ready for a shock return to Barcelona and would be included in the list of the club’s players for the coming season.

Following his performance against the Catalans in the Champions League, it is believed that the Spanish giants have had a change of mind and will now speak to his agent to dump talks with other clubs.

What is now unknown is if Philippe Coutinho will seek a return to the Camp Nou or push for a move away from the club.
