Reports emerging from Spain have revealed that Phillipe Coutinho had agreed to a transfer to Spurs last summer, only for negotiations between Barcelona and Tottenham to collapse.
Coutinho was linked heavily with a move to Spurs last summer after he found himself surplus to requirements at the Camp Nou (AS). However, the former Liverpool star ended up making a move to Bayern Munich on loan instead.
The report claims that there is once again expected to be considerable interest from the Premier League for the 27-year-old this summer.
It is asserted that another season-long loan move away from Catalonia is the most likely scenario for Coutinho in the summer.

While I would have been extremely excited to have landed Coutinho last summer, I don’t expect us to go in for him again as I just don’t see him as a Mourinho-type signing. Besides, we are fairly well stocked in attacking midfield areas at the moment and our priority has to be signing a defensive midfielder and addressing the issues with the backline.
