Arsenal are set to bid for on-loan Aston Villa midfielder Philippe Coutinho in the summer.

The Brazilian wants to stay in the Premier League beyond this season and there is a belief that Villa are currently the frontrunners for his signature after uring him from Barcelona in January.

Diario Sport now reports that Arsenal are now waiting to see if Villa make their move, and if Gerrard is frustrated in a push for the Brazilian international, they could pounce and match the clause.

It is not the first time the Gunners are being linked with the Brazilian with the North London side said to have enquired about the player at the start of 2021/22, however, no offer materialized.

Barcelona are said to be open to selling the player on a permanent basis as they bd to get funds to fund moves of their own. They have so far been linked with Chelsea FC defender Andreas Christesen and captain César Azpilicueta.
