Barcelona could have found a possible exit for Philippe Coutinho. According to The Sun, the Gunners plan to talk with the Catalans this weekend, taking advantage of their Joan Gamper Trophy match to negotiate a possible loan move for the Brazilian.
Coutinho is one of the cases Barça have open this summer and one of the players they hoped would bring Premier League interest. The English market closes on August 8 so a deal would have to move quickly.
Raul Sanllehi, Arsenal's director-general, wants to make another statement this summer after signing Nicolas Pepe earlier this week from Lille. According to reports in England, Arsenal believe Coutinho can still be a success in England despite his struggles with Barça.
Barça, meanwhile, are clear that they want to move Coutinho on and are ready to negotiate his exit. Coutinho is the most expensive player in the club's history but his performances have not been as expected. The objective was to sell the player for over 100 million euros but the club may have to study a loan move. That's what Arsenal want for now.
