Some Tottenham fans on social media have been left rather divided over whether it would make sense for the North Londoners to sign Philippe Coutinho.

There have been plenty of rumours regarding Tottenham’s pursuit of Coutinho over the past month.

Reports from Spain indicate that Spurs are competing with Chelsea for the midfielder’s signature, with the Catalan giants said to be desperate to sell the former Liverpool star this summer (Sport).

While some reports have claimed that Tottenham are looking to sign the Brazilian on loan (Football Insider), a permanent transfer has also been suggested as a possibility by Sport (via Sport Witness).

Some Spurs fans have since urged Daniel Levy to do everything in his power to sign the 27-year-old as they felt he would be the ideal replacement for Christian Eriksen.

However, others wondered if the money it would take to sign Coutinho would be better spent on other areas of the pitch.

Here’s how some fans reacted to the reports linking Tottenham with a move for the Barca star:


Spurs Web Opinion

Given the financial pressures we are under and the substantial risk the Coutinho transfer represents, I cannot see us signing the 27-year-old permanently, even if Barca slash his price. A loan deal with an option to buy seems like the only possible way we would be willing to do a deal.
