Spurs fans on Twitter have been reacting to the latest report on former Liverpool ace Philippe Coutinho. 

According to Football Insider (via Sport) the North London club would have to offer the Brazilian €222,000 (£197k) a week in order to seal a loan deal for the Barcelona man this summer. The report also suggests that the midfielder’s agent, Kia Joorabchian, has contacted clubs to try and find him a new side, with Spurs a potential option for the 27-year-old this summer.

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

With Barcelona potentially facing financial difficulties, it is perhaps no surprise that the Catalan club are keen to move the former Liverpool man on this summer, although whether that’s on a permanent deal or an expensive loan deal is yet to be decided. The La Liga giants signed the playmaker from Jurgen Klopp’s side in 2018 in an eye-watering £142 million deal, although his time there has not exactly gone to plan, with Coutinho featuring just 76 times, contributing 21 goals and 11 assists (per Transfermarkt).

Is Coutinho a worthwhile signing for Spurs?

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

One fan suggested that the Brazilian international would be a great replacement for Christian Eriksen, with the Danish international having completed a move to Inter from Spurs in the January transfer window.

Another fan commented that he was surprised some fans wouldn’t want the Lilywhites to sign Coutinho this summer, whilst also suggesting that the former Liverpool man is way ahead of the likes of Dele Alli and Giovani Lo Celso.

Other Spurs fans did buck the trend by suggesting that the 27-year-old wouldn’t be a good signing for Jose Mourinho’s side this summer.

Overall, it seems as if a lot of Spurs fans would love to see their club sign Coutinho this summer and will be hoping that Mourinho can convince him to return to the Premier League.
