Rivaldo Urges Coutinho To Consider Arsenal Move

Coutinho- Klopp

Coutinho looks set to leave Barcelona this summer after failing to live up to his £130million price tag at the club.

Barcelona wouldn't be against another loan deal, although they would demand that the player's wages are paid by the club in full, something which in theory would rule out Arsenal, who had been mooted as one interested party.

Coutinho was ultimately deemed surplus to requirements ahead of the 2019-20 campaign, and Bayern snapped him up on a season-long loan.

The super-agent says that, although Coutinho has not yet given up on his career at Barca, he would welcome the chance to return to the Premier League if he is forced out of Camp Nou at the end of the season.

'He loves playing in the Premier League, he is adored playing in the Premier League and that is one of his priorities.

Arteta has recently bemoaned the lack of creativity available to him at Arsenal, and Coutinho's arrival would surely help him in that regard for next season.


Coutinho has been attracting interest from Arsenal, Tottenham and Leicester - according to Sport - and his agent Kia Joorabchian has expressed the Brazilian's interest to return to the Premier League.

"It would be a good opportunity for the Brazillian to rediscover his best form and show that he continues to be an excellent player who belongs to the elite".

"Because the Champions League is going to run all the way until August 23, I think it will be hard for players like Coutinho to make any commitment or move until that date", Joorabchian told talkSPORT on Tuesday.

"It's no secret he wants to come back to the Premier League", Joorabchian was quoted as saying by talkSPORT.

Arsenal could make the move more appealing to Coutinho if they are able to win the FA Cup final at the weekend, as they will at least have European football on offer.
