Philippe Coutinho open to Tottenham Hotspur switch

According to a report from Sport (h/t The Sun), Barcelona star Philippe Coutinho could be on his way back to the Premier League this summer, with Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal or Leicester City likely to be his next destination.

The 28-year-old Coutinho enjoyed a successful stint in England with Liverpool, before he forced a move away to Barcelona in January 2018. However, things have hardly gone to plan for the Brazilian playmaker in Spain.

Having failed to make much of an impact at Camp Nou, Coutinho was loaned out to Bayern Munich last summer. He had a fairly decent season in Bavaria, playing a role in Bayern’s Bundesliga title triumph. However, the German giants have decided not to sign him on permanently.

But with Barcelona also not keen on retaining him in the summer, the Brazilian is already negotiating his exit from the Catalan outfit. His agent, Kia Joorabchian, has revealed that the midfielder is trying to work out a return to England. (h/t The Sun)

“We are looking to see if any opportunity arises in the Premier, where he has already triumphed.”

The report further adds that Coutinho could be headed to any of three following clubs – Arsenal, Leicester or Tottenham Hotspur.

Spurs have been previously linked with a move for the 28-year-old Brazilian playmaker. And with Europa League qualification secured, the report states that the club will have the financial pull to secure a move for the Barcelona star.

We could certainly do with a player of Coutinho’s experience and calibre in the squad. However, given the current financial situation, it remains to be seen if Daniel Levy & co. decide to make a move for him.
