There’s a good possibility for you to come across a report on Philippe Coutinho if you regularly follow Sport Witness’ coverage of the Catalan media.

Barcelona are determined to cut ties with the former Liverpool star this summer.

He’s been linked with a return to the Premier League, with Arsenal being discussed as one of the clubs interested in the 28-year-old.

Last week, Foot Mercato reported the La Liga side have offered the Brazil international to the Gunners in exchange for Mattéo Guendouzi.

The Frenchman hasn’t featured for Arsenal since his side’s defeat to Brighton last month and Mikel Arteta has left the midfielder out of the squad for the last nine matches.

Mundo Deportivo journalist Miguel Rico takes a look at the report about a possible swap deal involving Coutinho and the 21-year-old.

He claims Guendouzi ‘does not interest’ Quique Setién’s side, and that should rule out an exchange operation involving these two players. Rico doesn’t mention Arsenal’s chances of signing the playmaker.

Five days ago, the same newspaper explained the door to joining Mikel Arteta’s side is ‘more open’ for Coutinho after receiving an ‘endorsement’ from Arsenal technical director Edu.
