Arsenal are ready to bid for Barcelona midfielder Philippe Coutinho.
Sport said the attacker has struggled with life at Barcelona ever since he left Liverpool for the Nou Camp back in 2018.
That led to him returning to the Premier League in January to join ex teammate Steven Gerrard at Aston Villa on loan for the rest of the campaign.
The 29-year-old has impressed so far back in England.
And that could lead to Villa deciding to turn the deal into a permanent arrangement by paying Barcelona £33.57 million for the Brazilian.
However, Arsenal are readying a move.
Mikel Arteta is looking into the possibility of bringing the South American to the Emirates.
And the chances of Arsenal signing him were boosted on Saturday as they claimed a 1-0 win over Villa to bolster their hopes of qualifying for next season’s Champions League.
