Barcelona will allow world class act to sign with Arsenal in Guendouzi-plus-£9 million deal

Arsenal have reportedly been offered the chance to sign out-of-favour Barcelona playmaker Philippe Coutinho this summer on a player-plus-cash deal

There has been alot of transfer speculation, and we mean alot, over the past few months about Arsenal trying to bring the Brazilian star back to the Premier League, with many reports suggesting that he was done at Barcelona and had no future with the club.

He has not made the kind of impact at the club that many at Barcelona were hoping for, and was even shipped out to Bayern Munich for a couple of seasons in hope that he could get back to his very best, but that has not happened.

And According to The Independent, Barcelona are open to the idea of a swap deal for Coutinho, involving Arsenal’s exiled midfielder Matteo Guendouzi moving in the other direction.

Guendouzi is regarded very highly with the Arsenal fans who believed that he would be a massive star for the club, but after falling out with boss Mikel Arteta and failing to impress on the pitch, his future at the club looks uncertain.

Barcelona have reportedly been keeping a close eye on the situation with Guendouzi at Arsenal and are big fans of the talents of the Frenchman, so they are willing to do a swap deal for Coutinho.

It is reported Barca want around £45.5million for the playmaker, but with Arsenal keen to offload Guendouzi, they may be prepared to offer the deal to land the Brazilian this summer, and would only have to pay around £9 million to complete a deal.

Look, we are big fans of Guendouzi and believe that he has a big future in the game, but if the reports are true and Arsenal have begun talks about a swap deal, Coutinho would be a massive signing for the club.

He is world class and would be the ideal man to come into a side that is lacking in world class quality, if the reports are true, Arsenal could be getting the better side of the deal.
