  • BARCELONA have agreed to let Philippe Coutinho leave on loan before the window closes, according to reports.

    The Brazilian left Liverpool for Barca in 2018 but has struggled to replicate his Anfield form since his arrival for £142million.

    According to TalkSport, the 27-year-old's preference is to come back to the Premier League with the Reds rivalling Manchester United, Arsenal, Tottenham for their former star's signature.


    There's no denying if Coutinho does sign for Arsenal he'll become a Dream Team favourite again.
