Mikel Arteta opinion of Phillippe Coutinho revealed



Arsenal has recently been linked with a move for Philippe Coutinho as the Brazilian is set to depart Barcelona this summer.

Coutinho has struggled since he left Liverpool for Barca in 2018 and the Spaniards sent him on loan to Bayern Munich this season.

He hasn’t impressed the Germans enough to make the move permanent, and they have confirmed that they won’t take up the option of making his move permanent.

He has now been linked with a summer move to Arsenal with reports claiming that the Gunners will open talks with his agent over a summer move.

Mirror Sport has now revealed that Coutinho was offered to Manchester City when Mikel Arteta was still assistant manager of the Citizens.

Pep Guardiola turned down the player because he didn’t think that Coutinho has a lot to offer his side. However, the report claims that Arteta didn’t agree with his boss.

Arteta is reportedly of the view that Coutinho still has a lot to offer as a footballer, and the Spaniard would be delighted to take him to Arsenal.

Arsenal has struggled to create chances from their midfield this season and the signing of Coutinho could bring more creativity into the team.

PICTURES: Thiago Silva and Ben Chilwell join Chelsea training



Chelsea returned to training today (Wednesday) at Cobham, and there were two new faces joining the rest of the squad, Thiago Silva and Ben Chilwell. The two summer arrivals had yet to train with the squad since signing, dealing with quarantine (presumably) and heel injury issues, respectively.

It’s unclear if either will be fit and ready for this weekend’s match against Liverpool, but it’s still nice to see them in training with the rest of the group! (Those who played on Monday apparently had a lighter session, but were all out there nonetheless.)

There’s no word on how close Hakim Ziyech and Christian Pulisic may be. Ziyech is probably still a couple weeks out with his knee problem, at least, but Pulisic was supposed to be close before suffering a potential setback with his hamstring late last week. Neither were pictured in training, and one would assume their presence would get emphasized had they been there.
