A mega swap deal between Barcelona’s Philippe Coutinho and Arsenal Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is being discussed, according to reports.
The Catalans remain interested in attacking reinforcements after the tumultuous exit of Lionel Messi, injury to Sergio Aguero and ongoing rehabilitation of Ansu Fati. Financial Fair Play restrictions have complicated this matter and created the need for inventive solutions.
SPORT have declared one avenue being explored is an exchange between the pair of attackers. Brazil playmaker Coutinho is unwanted by Barca, while Gabon forward Aubameyang wants to perform in the Champions League.
An added bonus for Barcelona is that Aubameyang’s wages are far less. But the Gunners’ imminent capture of Real Madrid and Norway schemer Martin Odegaard might kill their interest.
