Tottenham had lately emerged another big chaser of want-way Philippe Coutinho a loan move following the Spanish club’s intense effort to cash in on the 27-year-old Brazilian
Philippe Coutinho who joined Barca from Liverpool in a deal worth £142m in January 2018 worked with Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino during a loan spell with Espanyol in 2012.
He scored 21 goals from 76 appearances for Barcelona but has been repeatedly linked with a move away from the Nou Camp this summer with the La Liga champions ready to send him on loan.
Arsenal, Paris St-Germain and former employers Liverpool were among the clubs linked with a move for the playmaker.
Spurs could be set to lose midfielder Christian Eriksen as the 27-year-old Denmark international is understood to want a fresh challenge after six years at White Hart Lane.
Eriksen was linked with a move to Manchester United but the Old Trafford club have ended their pursuit of him.
