Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta involves Philippe Coutinho in summer transfer plans, according to The Times.
The Gunners will be desperate to build on their FA Cup winning success ahead of next season’s campaign given their disappointing league position.
However, with European football to look forward to again next term, Arteta is making big transfer plans as he desperately tries to get Arsenal back to where they should be.
The Times have reported that Arteta is building towards a 4-3-3 formation next season and is now making transfer plans with that in mind.
Philippe Coutinho is the man earmarked to be top of the transfer wishlist as they look for a creative spark who can hopefully provide chance after chance for the frontman.
The Brazilian has Premier League experience from his time at Liverpool and being on loan at Bayern Munich from Barcelona is clearly not in the La Liga club’s immediate plans.
