Report: Tottenham monitoring situation with Barcelona flop
By Eddie Razo -

Philippe Coutinho has become a headache for FC Barcelona over the years as the move for the Brazil international is a flop. Still, with high wages and no club willing to pay a fee for the player, the 29-year-old continues at the La Liga side. 

Nonetheless, Barcelona wants to offload the player and rid themselves of Coutinho’s high wages of £200,000 a week. El Nacional reports that two teams are tracking the former Liverpool midfielder. 

Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur keep their interest in the Brazilian player open. Nuno Espírito Santo’s squad needs someone to fill the creative shoes left behind when Cristian Eriksen left for Inter Milan. 

Coutinho is also familiar with the Premier League and has a good sample size of what he can do in England. However, the risks that Tottenham will take should they pursue Coutinho would be the high wages and injury history that has plagued him since arriving in Spain. 

It will be interesting to see whether Tottenham decides to pull the trigger on a possible deal this January.

I suspect he would of been a decent loan signing had we got Barcelona to pay half his wages…but I’d very much doubt he’d want to play for us…. he would have made an immediate improvement to our first 11 which is probably why we didnt sign him…probably saw his age & thought nope too old…

This is what I can’t understand about this blog. HH spends the majority of his time on the daily briefings vehemently criticising journalists for peddling nonsensical transfer speculation. He even goes to point of suggesting the reader should question their own intelligence if they believe one word of this nonsense.
Then you go into his blog and see this nonsense about Coutinho. Confusing.

Just thinking that our transfer activity recently has looked very ‘Poch like’. Argentinians and native Spanish speakers, Coutinho would be a player Poch worked with at Espanyol and reportedly wanted before he was sacked. Could a return or El Pocho actually be on the cards?
