Joining Barcelona in the winter of 2018 for up to 146 million pounds because midfielder Philippe Coutinho received a lot of expectations. In the first half of the season at Camp Nou, the 29-year-old has somewhat proved himself with 8 goals and 5 assists in 22 appearances.

It seemed that Coutinho would shine even more in the following seasons, but everything happened exactly the opposite. After disappointing in the 2018/19 season, he was pushed to Bayern Munich on loan. However, the former Liverpool star was quickly returned after 1 year at the German team.

After the departures of superstars Lionel Messi and Antoine Griezmann last summer, Coutinho continues to be believed to become the ‘new soul’ in the Catalan team’s play. However, the Little Wizard seems to have let his magic run out at Liverpool as he continues to show weak form.

That is why Spain’s Sport newspaper said that Barca is looking to sell Coutinho right in January to solve financial problems. In addition, coach Xavi Hernandez is also said to not attach too much importance to the former Inter Milan player and is ready to let him go.

And according to the latest information of Mundo Deportivo, Coutinho is looking to return to the Premier League to join Arsenal immediately in the context that he feels no future at the Catalan giants.
