The Former Champions of Spain want to offload Philippe Coutinho to raise funds.
As per reports the Catalans have offered the services of the Brazilian play maker to Arsenal and New Castle. Philippe Coutinho is already a flop at the Camp Nou as he couldn’t make his presence felt for the La Liga Giants.
After a stint with FC Bayern it was thought that the Brazilian star might have finally found a home but the Bavarians refused the £70 million buy out clause for the midfielder. He has a decent time at the Allianz Arena as he found the back of the net 8 times and provided 6 assists.
While Arsenal have been linked to 28 years old in the past, a complete transfers looks impossible due to the financial problems at the club. But, a loan deal remains an option for the gunners if they want to land the Brazilian at the Emirates next season.
Talking about New Castle, the deal depends on the take over by the Saudi Arabian owners. Chelsea and Spurs are also rumoured to have an eye on the Brazilian star.
Barcelona are desperate to land the Argentine Striker Lautaro Martinez at the Camp Nou but the only problem is that they are short of funds. If the deal for Philippe Coutinho goes through with any of the above mentioned clubs, it will be a great chance for the Catalans to sign the Argentine Striker and might convince The Argentine Icon Lionel Messi to stay at the club.
