Philippe Coutinho speaks following Arsenal speculation


Brazilian international Philippe Coutinho does not want to be distracted with speculations over his future as his mind has been made to remain with Spanish La Liga outfit Barcelona under new manager Ronald Koeman.

After leaving Liverpool to join the Catalans, Philippe Coutinho lost his mojo and could not give a good account of him. He was made to leave the club on a loan deal to German Bundesliga outfit Bayern Munich.

Upon the end of his loan term with the Bayern Munich, there were speculations that he would be returning to the English Premier League with his agent fuelling speculations of a move to the Emirates Stadium to join Arsenal.

The expected move by Philippe Coutinho to Arsenal was therefore stopped when Barcelona hired a new manager who decided to work with the Brazilian international and insisted on his return to Camp Nou.

That has not stopped the speculations of a move away from Barcelona but the final words from Philippe Coutinho could put an end to all of the confusion.

He has made it clear that he is focused in Barcelona with a lot of desires for things to go well this time around.

Meanwhile, Liverpool are also linked with the player with speculations that he would return to the Anfield.
