Philipppe Coutinho’s transfer saga has been of the most exciting this summer and it has taken a new twist with the Barcelona star rejecting a loan move to Tottenham Hotspur according to reports.

Coutinho has found it difficult finding his feet since he made a big money move to Camp Nou in 2018.

The Brazil international has suffered rejection by the club and fans due to a major decline in his performance as a section of the fans was heard booing him at times last season.

This has led to several media houses linking him with a potential return to the Premier League this summer and according to talkSPORT, Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester United and Tottenham are all keeping tabs on the attacker.

On Tuesday, L’Equipe reported that Coutinho favors a move Arsenal and that he has agreed a season-long loan deal with the Gunners.

A new report then emerged of Tottenham launching a bid to acquire Coutinho on loan as they move in search of replacement for wantaway Christian Eriksen.

However, talkSPORT  are now reporting today that the South American would not consider moving to White Hart Lane on loan.

Arsenal appear to be the front-runner for his signature but the Brazilian is currently training with the Barcelona squad in Miami so any transfer dealings will have to be really fast if a Premier League transfer can be actualized before the deadline on Thursday.

Arsenal have failed to record a single victory in their four previous Premier League and the Gunners faithfuls are calling for Unai Emery’s dismissal as soon as possible.

The North London club were defeated 2-0 by Leicester City on Saturday, a result which put them in the sixth position with 17 points from 12 matches.

It was earlier reported that the Gunners hierarchy are willing to respect their contractual agreement with the former PSG manager by giving him the chance to be at the helm of affairs till the end of the season but that could change anytime soon.

According to Spanish media El Confidencial, the Gunners board members are losing their patience with the Spanish tactician and they are reportedly in search of his replacement.

The same source revealed that former Barcelona and Spain head coach Luis Enrique is being considered as the best man for the job.

Enrique, who surprisingly left his post as Spain head coach this year, is heavily linked with Gunners managerial position but it is left to be seen if he will accept the offer midway through to the campaign.

Former Manchester United manager José Mourinho was earlier said to be leading the race for the job but the Arsenal’s head of football Raul Sanllehi quickly debunked the rumors.

Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka is experiencing one of his most difficult times at the Emirates Stadium since his unhealthy incident with his own fans few weeks ago.

The Swiss midfielder was appointed the Gunners captain by Unai Emery at the early stages of the season, a decision which doesn’t go well with fans.

Unfortunately, Xhaka couldn’t keep the captain’s armband for a long period of time as he was stripped off the position following his avoidable spat with his own fans during their 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace last month.

However, situation got worse for the former Borussia Monchengladbach star who has failed to feature in the last three matches played the Gunners.

To worsen the player’s situation at the Emirates Stadium, report via the Mirror claimed that Unai Emery and his employers are ready to cash-in on his services in January.

According to the British media, Arsenal board members are willing to release the Switzerland international in January even if they won’t make much profit from his sale.

It should be recalled that the Xhaka joined the Gunners from Monchengladbach in a £34m deal, but The Mirror revealed that the Gunners are expecting inexpensive offer from potential suitors when the next transfer window commences.
