Philippe Coutinho Reportedly Set To Join Arsenal On Loan

Philippe Coutinho Reportedly Set To Join Arsenal On Loan

Barcelona midfielder Philippe Coutinho is poised to make a shock return to the Premier League on loan with Arsenal.

Bilel Ghazi, one of L'Equipe's top reporters and the man who was first onto the Neymar to PSG story back in 2017, has just broke the news.

Coutinho left English football in January 2018 when he sealed a dream £142 million move to Barcelona from Liverpool but the former Inter Milan playmaker has struggled in Spain, failing to properly establish himself as a first-team regular under Ernesto Valverde despite occasional moments of brilliance.

Contracted with the Blaugrana until 2023, he now looks set for a second stint in England with Arsenal in the hope of getting valuable game-time.

The 27-year old made the switch to England for a dirt-cheap £8.5 million in January 2013 and went on to become one of the most exciting players in the Premier League, scoring 41 goals and registering 35 assists for his teammates in 152 top-flight appearances.

Should Coutinho join on a temporary basis as expected, he will become the second loan signing from La Liga this summer after the recruitment of Real Madrid's Dani Ceballos for a season.

And he will add to an already deadly-looking forward set of attacking options at the Emirates, along with fellow No.10's Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Mesut Ozil, £72 million club-record signing Nicolas Pepe and devastating duo Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Not bad for a club who didn't have any money to spend this summer summer..
