Brazilian and Barcelona legend Rivaldo has said Coutinho should do whatever it takes to return to the Premier League, as the move could help him rediscover his best form.
“His best option could be returning to English football where he spent the best seasons of his career and in which his qualities seem to be best suited, as he proved at Liverpool when was one of the best players in the Premier League,” Rivaldo said.
“At Arsenal, Tottenham or Leicester, Coutinho could be a regular starter next season.
“It would be a good opportunity for the Brazilian to rediscover his best form and show that he continues to be an excellent player who belongs to the elite.”
Philippe Coutinho’s proposed move to Arsenal is said to be at an ‘advanced‘ stage, even though Arsenal announced 55 staff redundancies.
The Brazilian will reportedly end his stay at Barcelona and will be eager to move back to the premier league , which he left in 2018.
According to The Telegraph, Arsenal are the favorites to land the 28 year old who is keen on a return to the premier league.
The Barcelona midfielder will return from his loan spell at Bayern Munich, and doesn’t appear to have a future at the Nou Camp.
The telegraph also reported that, the La Liga giants will have to pay some of his wages if he is to sign on loan for Arsenal.
The Brazilian is on a whopping £240,000-per-week at Barcelona, and those wages have put off a series of suitors from few European clubs.
