Arteta Gives ‘Resounding Yes’ As Arsenal Boss Approves Jan Transfer For Top Attacker

Arteta Gives ‘Resounding Yes’ As Arsenal Boss Approves Jan Transfer For Top Attacker

Mikel Arteta wants Arsenal to bring Barcelona playmaker Philippe Coutinho to north London in the January transfer window, according to reports in Spain.

The former Liverpool man has struggled for form and fitness since leaving the Reds for Barcelona back in January 2018.

His hefty £142million price tag has always lingered over him and has been harder to justify amidst Barca’s well documented financial troubles.

Arsenal are prepared to cover some or all of his wages for the rest of the season with his time at Barcelona ‘finished once and for all’.

Meanwhile, former Arsenal striker Kevin Campbell “would love to see” the Gunners swap Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong.
