Arsenal fans react on Twitter to Philippe Coutinho’s display in Bayern win

A number of Arsenal fans have taken to Twitter to implore the Gunners to sign Philippe Coutinho this summer after watching his display in the Champions League on Saturday night.

Coutinho has been linked with the Gunners for some time. However, it appears that the chances of him moving to the Emirates may currently look slim.

However, some Arsenal supporters believe that Coutinho should still be a target after his latest display. The former Liverpool man came on during the second-half against the Blues and produced an encouraging performance.

He was more than happy to try and get the ball forward into dangerous areas. Sometimes those passes did not pay off, but there were a couple of occasions where the visitors were split open.

It was Coutinho’s nice pass with the outside of his boot that led to the cross that provided one of Bayern’s two late goals.

And some Arsenal fans clearly feel that he could make a big difference if he joined the Gunners this summer.

Here is how some of the fans reacted to Coutinho’s Champions League cameo…
