​Arsenal manager Arteta determined to sign Barcelona midfielder Coutinho

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta is eager to sign Philippe Coutinho from Barcelona.

The young Spanish boss wants more creativity in his team.

And given the sidelining of Mesut Ozil, an attacking midfielder is a priority.

The Daily Express claims Arteta wants Coutinho to fill the role Bruno Fernandes is playing at Manchester United.

Coutinho could come to the Gunners on a loan deal, even though he may prefer a move to a club in the Champions League.

The Brazilian won the competition with Bayern Munich on Sunday, coming on a substitute in the 1-0 success over Paris Saint-Germain.
