The Latest on Philippe Coutinho links to Arsenal and Spurs

Coutinho is set to move to Tottenham for a fee of €23m and Spurs will also cover 100 per cent of his €12m salary.

Coutinho was understood to have been keen on a return to England, triggering Spurs to assess their options ahead of Christian Eriksen's potential switch to Manchester United.

It's been reported a couple of times over the past few days the Red Devils have been in talks with Spurs for the Denmark global, but nothing has suggested those negotiations are leading anywhere.

It appeared he was likely to stay at the Nou Camp until Tottenham made an attempt to sign him on loan before Thursday's English transfer deadline.

"The Brazil worldwide is out of favour at Camp Nou and reports in Spain and France have linked the Gunners with the former Liverpool player, with some even stating that a deal was close to completion. As I said, having him would make each team better - us included - but I really hope that he finds his luck at Barcelona".

The statement comes following a series of vessel seizures by the Iranian forces since May. The UK, however, later accepted to join the coalition.


SPORT say "the Brazilian would like to return to Liverpool", but add he knows any transfer is unlikely.

Yet another reliable journalist joined the fray with another contrasting report, with Fabrizio Romano claiming that Coutinho was offered to Arsenal by Barcelona, but the Gunners turned a blind eye in order to pursue the centre-back that they so desperately need.

The signing of Coutinho would give Arsenal something of a lopsided look heading into the 2019-20 Premier League season. He has not played but the plan we have with him is the same.

There was another big report later on Tuesday night with Gianluca Di Marzio claiming that Spurs had found an agreement with Juventus for Paulo Dybala.

Jurgen Klopp's Reds also retain an interest in their former player although the German believes he may struggle to accommodate the 27-year-old, who moved to Barca for £142m.
