Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with a number of attacking midfielders throughout this transfer window, with reports stating that the club are determined to sign Giovani Lo Celso or Bruno Fernandes before the window shuts (Standard).

However, there has been a fresh turn in Spurs’ pursuit of a new playmaker, as they are apparently now in for Barcelona star Philippe Coutinho (Sky Sports News).

The player is said to be surplus to requirements over in Spain after his huge £142m move from Liverpool back in January 2018 (Guardian).

Barca are reportedly now willing to accept just £80m for the player, who has vast experience in the Prem with the reds (Sky Sports News).

Sky Sports News have added that Pochettino has now called the Brazilian star in order to attempt to convince him to join the Lilywhites.

Spurs are now said to be favourites to seal the deal for the playmaker before the Thursday 5 pm deadline, taking Coutinho on loan.

The Brazilian is currently in Miami, which is coincidentally exactly where Poch said Daniel Levy was last week (Football London).

Some fans have reacted to the rumours on Twitter:
