‘Spurs should sell to get world-class Coutinho’

The former Tottenham goalkeeper would like to see Jose Mourinho in the market for proven playmaker who has struggled at Barcelona and Bayern Munich

Tottenham should be looking to move players out in the next transfer window to make room for “world-class” Philippe Coutinho, says Paul Robinson.

Spurs are among those to have been linked with a move for the Brazil international.

Former Liverpool star Coutinho has found himself scratching around for form since leaving Anfield for Barcelona in January 2018.

Having flopped at Camp Nou, similar struggles have been endured during a loan spell at Bayern Munich.

Despite his failings in Spain and Germany, Robinson believes the South American would be “an asset anywhere” in English football.

Chelsea are said to be heading a list of suitors when it comes to Coutinho, but Spurs manager Jose Mourinho has been urged to free up space in his squad for the creative 27-year-old.

Former Spurs goalkeeper Robinson told Football Insider: “I can see him [joining] a top-six Premier League side – Tottenham included.

“You saw how good he was at Liverpool and when he went to Barca you expected big things from him but it did not work out and he got moved onto Bayern.
