Report: Tottenham told to pay £8m to sign Brazilian star on loan for next season

Tottenham will have to pay £8m to sign Philippe Coutinho on loan

According to a report from Football Insider (h/t Football.london), Barcelona have set their asking price for midfielder Philippe Coutinho, who has been linked with a move for Tottenham Hotspur.

Coutinho signed for Barcelona in January 2018 from Liverpool, but has struggled to make the desired impact. The Brazilian playmaker was loaned out to Bayern Munich last summer, where he has fared decently. In 32 matches in all competitions, the 27-year-old has scored nine goals and assisted eight more.

Barcelona though are looking to offload Coutinho this summer. While a permanent transfer had been mooted, they are now reportedly willing to let the Brazilian leave on loan once again. The Catalans are demanding that clubs interested in signing the 27-year-old on loan should pay £8m and cover his full wages.

Having allowed Christian Eriksen to leave in January, bringing in another attacking midfielder wouldn’t be the worst idea for Tottenham. Giovani Lo Celso’s signing was made permanent soon after. But Dele Alli’s form has been up and down over the course of the season.

Coutinho, despite having had his ups and downs since leaving Liverpool, remains a quality player with proven Premier League pedigree. Add to that, his ability to play in midfield and on the left-wing would mean that signing him would strengthen two positions in the squad.

Considering that he would be moving on loan for a fee of just £8m, it would be an option worth looking at for our club. However, the 27-year-old’s wages might be a problem though given that he currently makes £240,000 per week.
