Barcelona-based Aston Villa playmaker Philippe Coutinho could take a pay cut to remain in England, according to interest from Arsenal’s Mikel Arteta Mundo Deportivo.

Mundo Deportivo have reported that Arsenal are interested in signing former Liverpool attacking midfielder Coutinho from Barcelona in the summer transfer window.

Villa manager Steven Gerrard wants the Brazilian international to stay at the club beyond his loan period.

The Liverpool legend has allegedly told Villa bosses to make Coutinho’s loan deal permanent at the end of the season.

The 29-year-old joined Villa on loan from Barcelona in the January transfer window until summer 2022.

Mundo Deportivo have reported that Coutinho is aware he will face a pay cut if he stays in England.

Arsenal or Aston Villa for Philippe Coutinho?

In our opinion, Arsenal have an edge over Villa in the race for Coutinho.

The Gunners could finish in the top four of the Premier League this season and the chance to play in the Champions League could appeal to the Brazilian.

After all, Coutinho is used to playing in top competitions and fighting for big trophies.

Yes, the Brazilian is thriving at Villa now, but the Villans are unlikely to even push for Europa League spots in the next two seasons or more.

Coutinho is 29 and in his prime and the chance of at least fighting for trophies with Arsenal could be more appealing.

The former Liverpool star has scored four goals and provided three assists in 10 Premier League games for Villa during his previous loan spell. The £480,000-a-week ace could face a pay cut amid Arsenal interest
