Phillipe Coutinho to Arsenal keeps cropping up daily, with Arsenal said to be hot on heels of the player as they look to secure his signature ahead of next season.
Reports have previously claimed that Arsenal have made major strides in their chase for the Brazilian midfield maestro, with some even going as fast as saying personal terms have been agreed and a transfer pending as Coutinho is still on duty at Bayern Munich as they chase European glory.
The highly reliable David Ornstein of ‘The Athletic’ has now spoken on the rumors.
“Arsenal have been offered Coutinho by Barcelona. As things stand, it’s not a player Arsenal are pursuing” he said.
David Orstein is far and away the most reliable Arsenal transfer news reporter as if this is own verdict of the speculations the Arsenal may well still have a lot more to do should they wish to secure the coveted signature.
