Arsenal agree personal terms with La Liga playmaker
Arsenal have reportedly agreed personal terms with Philippe Coutinho ahead of his potential loan move to the Emirates Stadium this summer.
The Brazilian is currently out on loan with Bayern Munich, but he is expected to return to the Camp Nou at the conclusion of their Champions League campaign.
Coutinho has been touted to make a return to the Premier League next season and Catalan Sport claims that the Gunners have agreed personal terms with the former Liverpool man.
According to Gooner Fanzine, Coutinho is said to have visited the Gunners' training ground alongside his agent on Friday, but it is unclear whether there is any truth to the story.
Arsenal are expected to sign Willian on a free transfer once Chelsea's elimination from the Champions League is confirmed. It will be interesting to see whether Coutinho will play alongside his compatriot next term.
The Blaugrana are said to demand a loan fee of around £10m. They are prepared to negotiate on the wages and could be prepared to pay 50 percent of his £210,000-a-week salary.
