Tottenham v Arsenal in yet another transfer tug of war

Tottenham Hotspur have competition from two unnamed Premier League clubs for Philippe Coutinho, it has been claimed in Spain.

- When does the transfer window close?

RB Leipzig's Dayot Upamecano is no longer an option as a deal was too complicated to conclude, though, Juventus' Daniele Rugani is in the frame following a meeting in London this week between Sanllehi and Juve director Fabio Paratici.

Sources have told ESPN FC that the player has been offered to both Manchester United and Tottenham. In Coutinho's one season at Espanyol under Pochettino, he began to solidify himself as an electric player in the final third with tremendous skill, tactical abilities, and ruthlessness in front of goal.

The risk of selling Eriksen to a direct Premier League rival can not be overstated, as a player of the Dane's quality would propel United to another level.

In the past year of his contract with Spurs, the Denmark worldwide is waiting to decide his long-term future, which could depend on what happens with Paul Pogba.

Despite operating with a reduced budget, Arsenal have already struck permanent deals for Nicolas Pepe and William Saliba, as well as a loan move for Dani Ceballos, but Unai Emery remains eager to add even more new faces. Since Barcelona are willing to recoup a huge amount for the Brazilian after the deal sanction of Antoine Griezmann, the former Liverpool star will be sold in the next summer.

Coutinho's time at Barcelona has not gone to plan, while Liverpool achieved an incredible points tally of 97 last season and lifted their sixth European trophy.

Spurs have swooped in and now made a bid for Coutinho, who would reportedly cost them between 21 and 27 million euros.
