Arsenal will sign midfielder, Phillipe Coutinho, from Barcelona this summer on one condition.

According to Le10 Sport, Arsenal will sign Coutinho only if there is good news involving his knee injury.

Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta, is a huge admirer of Coutinho but any move for the 29-year-old hinges on his rehabilitation regarding a knee injury he sustained at the tail end of last season.
