The international friendlies, as well as the FIFA World Cup Qualifiers, are in full flow. Amidst all these actions, the transfer rumor mill is going on in full flow. And here we are once again with the daily dosage of transfer news that have come out from the world of football. The most exciting one that has surfaced is the one that states that Arsenal is very much keen to bring in Napoli while Philip Coutinho might be set to leave Liverpool to settle in Barcelona.
Barcelona has been in the think of actions for quite a while now. While rumors are making rounds that Barcelona might miss out on their talismanic Brazilian Neymar, others have stated that they might just be ready to secure the services of yet another talented Brazilian in the form of Philip Coutinho. Talks have been going around for a long time that Barcelona has their eyes set on the creative midio, but it remains to be seen whether Liverpool is ready to release perhaps their best player in the squad. And as things stand, if these two clubs do not come to an agreement before the start of the next season, they might eventually come to terms in the season following this one.
While Liverpool is facing such a crisis of keeping the services of Coutinho secured for a longer period of time, things are not looking bright for Arsenal. We have reported earlier that Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil are all set to leave the club at the end of this season. But the question remains which players are going to be brought in to replace these two immensely decorated internationals. At this point in time, it seems that they are set to land a bid for Napoli duo Lorenzo Insigne and Faouzi Gholuam. In fact, the scout team from Arsenal were reportedly spotted in the recent match between Napoli and Atalanta.
Certainly, the arrival of Insigne will strengthen the attacking line-up, but it will be a matter of debate that whether he will be a suitable replacement for either Ozil or Sanchez. And as rumors are making rounds, even if they fail to sign Ghoulam, The Gunners are seemingly desperate to sign the Italian attacking midfielder.
Well, these are all we have at this moment. Certainly, there are lots more to come. And to stay updated regarding what’s happening in the transfer market, do not forget to come back to this thread.
