Barcelona midfielder Coutinho offered to Arsenal and Newcastle

Barcelona midfielder Philippe Coutinho has been offered to Arsenal and Newcastle United.

Goal says the 28-year-old has spent the season on loan at Bayern Munich but with the Germans passing up the chance to sign Coutinho permanently, Barca are now looking to sell in order to finance a move for Inter Milan forward Lautaro Martinez.

The report details that Barcelona are seeking out potential destinations for Coutinho in order to free up funds in both their wage and transfer budget.

Though few European clubs have the resources to take on Coutinho's salary and transfer price, particularly in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, a return to the Premier League is seen as the most likely outcome.

Both Arsenal and Newcastle have been sounded out, though neither club have issued a response yet.
