He had worked with Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino during a loan spell with Espanyol in 2012, and was set to be a replacement for Christian Eriksen, who was linked with a move away from the club.

Eriksen was earlier linked with a move to rivals Manchester United, but the Old Trafford club have ended their pursuit of him.

Coutinho could remain at Barcelona, where he has scored 21 goals in 76 appearances, but has been repeatedly linked with a move away from the Nou Camp.
