According to, Arsenal’s loan settlement for Barcelona midfielder Philippe Coutinho is at an advanced level.
Coutinho’s loan transfer to Arsenal is drawing ever closer according to Spanish newspaper Sport.
Indeed, Sport claim the Gunners ‘love’ the Brazilian star.
Kia Joorabchian, Coutinho’s agent, has an ever-growing presence in the Emirates, having already introduced David Luiz and Cedric Soares to the team.
Moreover, Mikel Arteta is aiming to introduce Brazilian players Coutinho and Willian to his books, as he looks to rejuvenate his team after a tumultuous domestic season that ended high due to the glory of the FA Cup.
Following his problems at Camp Nou after his £145million contract from Liverpool in January 2018, Barcelona is urgently trying to unload Coutinho.
Further, Barca were planning to send their unwanted stars to the Premier League in an attempt to collect critical funds following a season-ended nightmare in which they missed out on La Liga crown to Real Madrid.
He is actually on loan at Bayern Munich, but they still won’t sign him permanently.
