Coutinho linked with Tottenham switch

Former Liverpool playmaker Philippe Coutinho could be on his way to White Hart Lane.

It's believed that Barcelona are willing to send the Brazilian forward out on loan, with Tottenham Hotspur his likely destination according to reports this morning. 

The 27 year old has struggled to nail down a starting spot in the Barcelona team since signing from Liverpool for an initial £105m last year. 

Countinho's arrival could mean the departure of Christian Eriksen. The midfielder has been linked with a move to Manchester United, and with his contract up next summer Spurs are understood to be keen to cash in, once a replacement is brought in. 

The transfer window closes tomorrow (Thursday) at 5pm.
