Arsenal are reportedly set to open talks over a deal to sign Barcelona midfielder Philippe Coutinho on loan - should they be focusing on defensive signings?

If Coutinho leaves Barcelona, his priority is to return to the Premier League and Arsenal have been linked with a move for him on loan this summer.

According to journalist Rafael Hernandez on Twitter, there is speculation that officials from the two clubs will discuss a potential switch when the sides meet in a pre-season clash on Sunday.

Hence, the Spanish news agency claims that the Gunners' interest in the 27-year-old may be fading away and that Barcelona President Josep Maria Bartomeu intends to offer him to PSG once the deal with Arsenal is off the table.
