Liverpool and Tottenham want Coutinho on loan

Liverpool want to re-sign Philippe Coutinho on loan from Barcelona, according to talkSPORT.

The broadcaster claimed via their official Twitter account on Tuesday that Tottenham, Manchester United and Arsenal are also interested in signing the 27-year-old on a temporary basis.

Spanish news outlet Marca reported in May that Barca want to get rid of Coutinho due to his high wages that are worth £12.4million-a-year (£238,000-a-week).


Coutinho would be an incredibly good signing for any of these clubs – but would they be willing to pay those wages? Tottenham probably won’t. Daniel Levy is notoriously thrifty and could be unwilling to pay 100 per cent of the Brazil international’s wages. Arsenal have spent a lot of money already since the end of last season and would Coutinho, a former Liverpool player, really be keen on a move to Old Trafford? Liverpool have to be the most likely team to sign Coutinho out of these four Premier League sides, but Jurgen Klopp should not look to re-sign him. Although Coutinho was brilliant in his days at Anfield, those days have gone and there’s a chance that his underwhelming spell at the Nou Camp could see his form not be as good. Liverpool do need an attacking midfielder like the former Inter Milan ace, but they should go for someone who is younger and is not going to be demanding so much money in wages.
