Arsenal have been linked with a potential move for Philippe Coutinho during the January transfer window.

The Gunners have been associated with the Brazilian over the past year, but nothing has materialised beyond the speculation.

Still, he continues to be linked with the club. Sport claims that the north London giants are weighing up a winter approach.

The Blaugrana are ready to offload Coutinho on the cheap next month as they look to reduce their excessive wage bill.

The Gunners are said to hold an interest in the playmaker. The 29-year-old is also open to the prospect of joining them.

Mikel Arteta currently has adequate attacking options in the squad, but there is speculation that Nicolas Pepe could leave.

The Ivory Coast international has not started in the Premier League since October. There are claims that he could be loaned out.

This could pave the way for the arrival of Coutinho, who is comfortable playing outwide or in the number 10 position.
