Supporters of Tottenham Hotspur have gushed over a transfer report regarding Barcelona’s Brazilian attacker, Philippe Coutinho.

According to Catalan outlet ARA, as cited by Sport, Barcelona want to sell the former Liverpool man before 24th January.

Supposedly, Ronald Koeman’s side want to trim their wage bill, and with Coutinho being one of the club’s highest earners, he is in line to make an exit.

During the summer transfer window, Jose Mourinho’s outfit was linked with the Brazilian (per The Mirror) and it has been claimed elsewhere that this report from ARA states they have put the north London club on alert.

This was then picked up by Last Word On Spurs, which has relayed the claim on Twitter.

So far this season, Coutinho has made nine La Liga appearances for Koeman’s side, in which he has scored two goals and provided two assists (per WhoScored).

His performances over the nine outings have earned him a fairly respectable 6.87/10 average rating, making him Barcelona’s seventh-best performer in the league.

As can be seen in these responses from Spurs supporters, many of them were keen to see Mourinho’s side bring the Brazilian attacker to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
