According to Darren Bent, Tottenham should go a head and sign the former Liverpool and Bayern Munich loanee star, Philippe Coutinho in the summer. Reports reaching us indicate that Spur has been linked with an £8million for the Brazillian International who has also attracted other teams among them; Chelsea, Arsenal, Everton, and Newcastle United.
The attacking midfielder’s performance at Bayern Munich has not been impressive this also makes it very difficult for Barcelona to have him back at their den, so the move seems highly likely ahead of the summer transfer window.
While in Premier League, the Brazillian International was on top after he scored a record of 54 goals and 45 assists in 201 appearances for Liverpool only.

The ex-England international claims Spurs will not be taking any risks, despite the Brazilian’s struggles in the last two years, because of his experience of English football.
The former Sunderland star has thus urged the north Londoners to go ahead and complete the “superstar signing” of Coutinho.
Bent told Football Insider: “You’re talking about a top, top player who knows the Premier League very, very well. It’s not like you’re taking a risk.
“Coutinho’s a top player, he’s a superstar signing that Spurs need and even if it’s on loan, that’s the sort of superstar that they need to maybe encourage other superstars to come there.
“For me, I’d go all out and pay that £8million, pay that and try and get him. £8million for a top player like him for a year?
“You take that risk because at the end, you never know, at the end of the year it might work out really, really well.
“He could transform Spurs into an absolute powerhouse of a team. I wouldn’t even consider it – I’d just do it.”
