Transfer: Winterburn Speaks On Arsenal Missing Out On Philippe Coutinho

Following the desire of Arsenal to sign Barcelona playmaker, Philippe Coutinho, former Arsenal defender, Nigerl Winterburn has stated that the club losing out on a deal to sign the winger should not be seen as a blow.

Recall that there were speculations that the Gunners wanted the former Liverpool playmaker on a loan deal.

Barca was eager to part with Coutinho but no agreement was reached before the English premier league was shut.

“I don’t consider Arsenal missing out on Coutinho as a blow because I don’t think that it was ever realistic.”

“Some of the figures that were bandied about, I’ve read that the deal could be worth up to £40 million, would have been an incredible investment from Arsenal for a loan deal and something that just cannot happen.”

“He’s a terrific player, I think he would enhance most squads, but I don’t see it as a missed opportunity, because I was never convinced it was an option,” Winterburn told Sportingbet.
