Agent claims reported Spurs target is interested in Premier League switch

Philippe Coutinho’s agent, Kia Joorabchian has admitted the Brazillian is interested in a potential move back to the Premier League in an interview with talkSPORT.

Following a difficult few years in Spain and Germany, the 27-year-old is said to be open to a move back to the English tip flight.

“We’re still waiting until the season finishes before we start talking about anything in terms of transfers,” he told talkSPORT.

“I’ve always said he loves to play in the Premier League. He enjoyed his time very much and if the opportunity arises to come back to the Premier League, whether it be this year or in the future, he’s definitely looking at that.”

However, the midfielder’s incredibly high wages are likely to prove a sticking point for Spurs, as he would rival Harry Kane as Tottenham’s top earner.

Could this develop into a possible switch for the playmaker with Tottenham’s transfer budget reportedly tight due to the current economic state?

Spurs Web Opinion

It is not the first time we have been linked with the former Liverpool playmaker. He tore us apart at the Nou Camp last season and was desperately unlucky not to get his name on the scoresheet. It would be interesting to see how he would fit into the side/who would make way. However, realistically this is a move which is highly unlikely.
