​Arsenal must make huge offer for Barcelona midfielder Coutinho

Arsenal will not be able to sign Barcelona star Philippe Coutinho on a budget deal.

The Gunners are interested in the Brazilian playmaker.

However, Marca suggests Barcelona will only sell him for a huge offer.

New boss Ronald Koeman is a fan of Coutinho and may want to integrate the player back into the first team squad.

He was on loan at Bayern Munich last term, but a loan move is unlikely this season.

Such news would put Coutinho out of Arsenal's reach, as they have a limited budget and want to sign other players as well.
