You gotta get what you can, and go from there. I think he's a great player. He comes in a little butt-hurt from the humiliation of his time at Barca, and will have something to prove.
I remember Hlebb. I see a similar role.
$12 mil is pocket-change in todays transfer market. Grab the guy.
For 12 million it's a no-brainer imo. Ofc it can depend on the salary aswell, but with Ozil making 350k pounds a week (likely sitting out all next year collecting the check) and Aubameyang on the verge of a new contract aswell, Coutinho likely doesn't ruin the salary structure.
Not gonna bull****, i haven't watched him much since he left Liverpool - but he was bullied out of Barcelona by the fans because of his performances and Bayern fans have trashed him aswell. So i don't know what to expect from him anymore, but if can play close the level he did at Liverpool, he's still a world class player and should be a profile for Arsenal. The biggest issue at Liverpool were the inconsistency, but during the last season or last 1½ season at Liverpool, he rarely had bad games and on his best days no one could stop him.
