Chelsea transfer target Philippe Coutinho has been linked with a summer move to Arsenal but according to European football expert Julien Laurens, Arsenal have no chance of signing Coutinho.

“No chance, it’s impossible,” Laurens told ESPN FC.

“I know where it comes from, it comes from France, a newspaper with no credibility whatsoever.

“We could talk about it but there’s no chance.

“It’s not my one and the only thing that could make people doubt slightly is that Coutinho’s agent is obviously Kia Joorabchian, who is very, very good friends and very close to Edu, the Arsenal sporting director, but that’s where it stops.

“Arsenal cannot afford either a transfer fee, his wages, not even a loan, a paying loan or anything like this.

“There were already links last summer with Coutinho.

“Even if Mesut Ozil leaves, they’re not going to replace him with Coutinho.

“So this one I can guarantee you will never happen.”
