Premier League duo eyeing Philippe Coutinho move in January

North London rivals Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur are interested in signing midfielder Philippe Coutinho from Barcelona.

Coutinho has fallen down the pecking order at Barca and there is a belief that the club wants to sell him as quickly as they can so as to avoid a clause placed in his contract by Liverpool over some appearance bonus.

The Daily Mail reports that both clubs are open to a six-month loan offer, but Barca would be required to pay half of his rumored £200,000 per week salary during the loan period, with no confirmation on a purchase clause being included.

Coutinho was heavily linked with a summer move away from the Camp Nou with his agent said to have preferred a Premier League move; Leicester City being one of the clubs said to have enquired about the player after they feared James Madison would depart to Arsenal-a move that didn't happen.

The Brazilian international has played a bit-part role in the opening weeks of the 2021/22 campaign. With Barca struggling this season, Ronald Koeman has still seen no reason to include the player in his team.
