​Coutinho advises Barcelona to move for Tottenham defender Alderweireld

Spanish outlet Diario Gol are speculating that Philippe Coutinho is eager for his club Barcelona to sign Toby Alderweireld from Tottenham.

There is much speculation that Alderweireld will not be at Spurs beyond the summer, given his contract situation has not been resolved.

The player is hoping for a substantial raise, which may not fit within the Spurs wage bill. He may also want to move to a club where he has a bigger chance to win trophies.

At the peak of his career, Alderweireld is a quality centre-half who would fit with any team.

And now it seems Coutinho wants that team to be Barcelona. They would hypothetically partner him next to Samuel Umtiti or Gerard Pique.
