Wilson believes Barcelona star could suit Tottenham’s style of play

As a result, the former Liverpool man will return to the Camp Nou during the summer and he is thereafter expected to be sold for an asking price of around £77m. Speaking exclusively on Football Insider, Wilson said that Coutinho should be a transfer target for Spurs in the summer, given he could prove the perfect foil for Harry Kane in the attack.
Obviously, the north London side have spent more than £120m to sign Tanguy Ndombele and Giovani Lo Celso over the past eight months but Wilson feels Coutinho would provide something with the quality from his passing and set-pieces, he told: “I think he’d be perfect for Tottenham’s style of play. Perfect for Harry Kane as well.
“I think they need somebody like that – I know they’ve got Giovani Lo Celso in there but I think that Coutinho-type player, somebody who can see that pass, someone with that quality from set-pieces. We saw what he did at Liverpool. He was extraordinary when he was there, and I think he would really fit Tottenham very well.”
Tottenham are expected to be without Kane for most of the season after his hamstring surgery and that is certainly a big blow to their top-four prospects. Still, they have managed to maintain their Champions League pursuit and they are currently within four points off Chelsea, who are fourth on the Premier League table. Spurs are scheduled to face Chelsea on the road later this month.
