While the news of Philippe Coutinho signing a new long term contract at Liverpool obviously had Liverpool fans in delirium, the news queerly had sombre implications for Arsenal fans.
The swiftness at which Liverpool got Coutinho to sign a new deal with the club obviously had Arsenal fans fuming who were not so happy with the way in which their own club was carrying out the negotiations for a new deal for Sanchez and Ozil.
The negotiations for the two players have well been going for months with the club facing an impasse with both players.
As such, the news of a top four rival tying down their prized asset with such alacrity had fans enviously pondering what was going on with their club’s negotiations for Ozil and Sanchez.
Check out the reaction below!
Arsenal are yet to agree terms with Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Özil's contract extensions.

Liverpool showed us how it's done by extending Coutinho's contract..
Now it's time for Arsenal to extend both Ozil and Sanchez's contracts!

Coutinho gets a new £200k a week wages but Arsenal still struggling to agree wage increase with Ozil & Sanchez.
Some clubs are JOKERS!

Must be infuriating for Arsenal fans seeing how quickly Liverpool have given Coutinho a new contract.

If Liverpool can pay Coutinho, @arsenal should quit sucking their thumb and give Alexis a befitting deal.
