Some Spurs fans have urged chairman Daniel Levy to push ahead with a deal for Barcelona midfielder Phillipe Coutinho after reports suggested that the Brazilian is keen on a return to the Premier League.

Coutinho, who is currently on a season-long loan at Bayern Munich is reportedly in the shop window this summer after the Bundesliga side decided not to take up the option to sign him on a permanent basis (Express).

The Brazilian reportedly agreed to sign for Tottenham last summer before the agreement between the North Londoners and the La Liga giants was said to have collapsed (Sport via Sport Witness).

The Mirror  claim that the 27-year-old is desperate to return to English football this summer, with Spurs, Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United set to battle it out for his signature.

While some Spurs fans felt that the former Liverpool star would be the ideal replacement for Christian Eriksen, who left Spurs to join Inter Milan in January, others doubted that the North Londoners can financially compete to land Coutinho’s signature.

Spurs Web Opinion

Despite Coutinho having a below-par season at Bayern, I still think he can potentially be a valuable addition for us. However, we are fairly well stocked in attacking midfield ranks at the moment and so I doubt if the club will be ready to spend big on the Brazilian when other positions are in more urgent need of upgrades.
