Barcelona wants Guendouzi, £9m from Arsenal for Coutinho


Philippe Coutinho

Barcelona’s desperate effort to sell Philippe Coutinho could see Arsenal paying just £9m in advance for the Brazilian star, the UK Independent confirms.

The LaLiga giants remain keen on Matteo Guendouzi, and the out-of-favor youngster may transfer to Camp Nou in a transaction that brings Coutinho to the Emirates.

Such a deal will see the Gunners paying an additional £9m.

Coutinho’s future is up in the air, after spending last season on loan at Bayern Munich.
