Barcelona ace Philippe Coutinho is cold on the idea of a move to Arsenal.

Mundo Deportivo says the former Liverpool man has no interest in leaving Catalonia on loan this summer, thereby ruling out a switch to the Gunners and a return to the Premier League.

The Brazilian was an unused substitute as Barca came from a goal down to beat Arsenal in the Joan Gamper Trophy friendly clash at the Nou Camp on Sunday evening.

Coutinho was one of 17 substitutes named by Barca boss Ernesto Valverde for the match, but despite Valverde making 11 changes in the match he didn’t come on.

He was always unlikely to feature anyway given that he’d only just returned from the Copa America.
