Spurs fans on Twitter have been reacting to the suggestion that the North London club have now ended their interest in former Liverpool man Philippe Coutinho. 

According to Marca (via Ricky Sacks), the Lilywhites have ended their interest in signing the Brazilian this summer, as his wage demands are too high and don’t fit into the strict wage structure in place at the North London club. The report suggests that although Barcelona are ‘desperate’ to sell the 27-year-old this summer, he is unlikely to complete a move to the Lilywhites, although Newcastle United remain interested, should their pending takeover go through.

How well do you remember Heung-Min Son's time with Spurs? - The Lilywhites signed Son from which Bundesliga side?

Last month, it was confirmed by Bayern Munich’s chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge that his side would not be exercising their option to sign the playmaker, despite him impressing in his loan spell there this season. The Brazilian international has made 22 appearances in the German top flight, averaging a 7.27/10 match rating, having contributed eight goals and six assists (per WhoScored).

Are you frustrated with Levy after the report on Coutinho?





Reaction from Spurs fans to the latest report on Coutinho can be seen in the tweets below.

Fans continued to vent their frustrations with Daniel Levy, with one fan even suggesting that Coutinho go on to join Chelsea and become a ‘world-beater’.

It is easy to understand Spurs fans’ frustrations, considering that in Coutinho’s previous spell in the Premier League, he contributed 41 goals and 37 assists in 152 appearances for Liverpool (per Transfermarkt).

Some fans, however, commented that they wouldn’t have wanted to see Coutinho join the club, anyway.

Overall, it seems as if a lot of Spurs fans are disappointed that the club looks set to miss out on Coutinho this summer.
