Arsenal first signing set to arrive January

According to Sport, former Liverpool star Philippe Coutinho is almost certain to join Arsenal after manager Mikel Arteta gave the green light to pursue the move.


According to the report, the players’ agents are traveling to London to finalize talks with the Gunners.

Coutinho joined Barcelona for £142 million in January 2018, but has fallen short of expectations.

Injuries, a frequent change of coaches, and a loss of form have marred the 29-year-stay old’s at Barcelona.

Arsenal is in pole position to bring the former Liverpool player back to England after he became available for transfer.

And according to the rumor, he is one step closer to joining Arsenal after Arteta approved the transfer.

According to the Spanish tabloid Sport, the player’s entourage is traveling to London in the hopes of receiving a ‘solid loan offer’ from Mikel Arteta’s team.

Arteta was said to have given the club’s board a resounding yes when approving the arrival of Coutinho.

It is believed that the North London club would pay only part of the midfielder’s mega-money wages, with Barcelona still contributing to his £150,000 per-week salary.
