While Bayern have decided against making the Brazilian's move permanent, it seems he could be headed for a return to the Premier League next season.

The Independent claim that the Catalan giants are now open to letting Coutinho move to Arsenal for £9million, with Matteo Guendouzi moving to the Camp Nou as part of the deal.

Guendouzi has not featured the Gunners since his scuffle in the 2-1 defeat to Brighton and Hove Albion in June and could look to revitalise his career in Spain.

Coutinho's agent Kia Joorabchian recently revealed the Brazilian midfielder's future will only be decided after the UEFA Champions League this month.

“Because the Champions League is going to run all the way until August 23, I think it will be difficult for players like Coutinho to make any commitment or move until that date,” he told talkSPORT .

“He has the Champions League at the moment and they have to qualify for the next round [against Chelsea], and then he could play Barcelona, believe it or not.

“After the Champions League, it’s not been a secret that he wants to come back to the Premier League if he can; he loves playing in the Premier League and is adored in the Premier League.”
