Arsenal have yet to do any major business this summer.

Phillipe Coutinho's agent Jia Joorabchian wants Arsenal to sign the Brazilian and Chelsea player Willian this summer, it's been claimed. Both Coutinho and Willian have uncertain futures at their current clubs.

Barcelona are reportedly keen on moving Coutinho along before the new season.

He's currently on loan with Bayern Munich, who still have the option to buy Coutinho.

Coutinho has also been linked with a move back to the Premier League.

Manchester United and Chelsea are said to have been potential suitors in the past.

But both clubs reportedly have different targets in mind.

According to the Athletic, however, Joorabchian wants Arsenal to try and take Coutinho to London.

The super-agent also wants the Gunners to try and prise Willian away from Chelsea.

Willian wants a three-year deal to stay at the Blues, who are on the verge of securing Champions League qualification next year.

Frank Lampard has said that the club are yet to formally sit down with Willian and discuss a new contract, but they've held preliminary talks

"We’re still talking with the players and with Willian in particular we’re talking with him," said Lampard.

"I don’t really want to get into talking about beyond this season.

"I want Willian to play his best football for the next nine or whatever games it is depending on our cup runs and that’s it.

"Behind the scenes we will talk.

"I get on very well with Willian himself and so do the club so we’ll see what happens."

Coutinho is said to be keen on a move back to England, but it's yet to be seen whether a club will bid for him.

The Brazilian hasn't reached the heights he was at when he played for Liverpool over two years ago.
