Could Tottenham sign Philippe Coutinho at the transfer deadline finish line?

De Jong makes big impression on Camp Nou debut

The news broke in L'Equipe on Tuesday afternoon that Arsenal had sensationally agreed a loan deal for Barcelona's Philippe Coutinho.

First, there was William Saliba who Tottenham tried to hijack at the eleventh hour and failed, then there was Dani Ceballos and again, Arsenal came out on top.

Arsenal had considered swooping for Coutinho after it emerged that Barca were open to letting him go, but with Mesut Ozil still in the side and defensive reinforcements their priority in the closing days of the window, they are in no rush to spend big on the former Inter star.

For Premier League clubs, the transfer window closes on Thursday evening.

Sources have told ESPN FC that the player has been offered to both Manchester United and Tottenham. With Barcelona dangling the carrot in front of a number of Premier League teams, it's hard to see where he will end up, if he moves at all. United have not completely ruled out making a move but Spurs is a more likely destination.

Sky Sports News report that Tottenham are the current favourites to land Coutinho and Pochettino has personally called the attacker to convince him to make the move.

"He's a splendid player, but we haven't talked about Coutinho at any time". Eriksen could leave Spurs to join United, but the two clubs are yet to agree a fee.

If a move to the Premier League fails to materialise, there remains interest from Paris Saint-Germain, with Barcelona still interested signing Neymar from the Ligue 1 champions.

The Brazil global has no shortage of suitors but has spoken previously of his bond with former club Liverpool where he has strong emotional ties and good friends.
