Barcelona midfielder Coutinho makes Aston Villa call amid Arsenal push

Barcelona midfielder Philippe Coutinho is willing to take a major pay-cut to sign permanently with Aston Villa.

Arriving on-loan in January, Coutinho has been outstanding for Villa, playing some of the best football seen from the Brazilian since his departure from Liverpool.

Coutinho's loan with Villa includes a €40m permanent option and Mundo Deportivo says he's willing to take a significant pay-cut to stay.

In 10 appearances for Aston Villa, Coutinho has scored four goals and provided three assists.
