Football rumours: Barca not giving up on Coutinho and Spurs aim to make first signing

The PHILIPPE COUTINHO-to-Barcelona transfer saga could rumble on until the end of the window with the Catalan club admitting it will be difficult to prise the Brazilian playmaker away from Anfield, the Liverpool Echo reports.

However, according to the Daily Telegraph, the LaLiga giants are prepared to "fight" all the way to land their man.

The Telegraph also reports that Chelsea striker DIEGO COSTA has no intention of returning to Stamford Bridge as he pushes for a move to Atletico Madrid.

But with the Spanish club under a transfer embargo, Everton could seek to land the Spain international on a short-term deal, according to the Sun.

Tottenham defender KEVIN WIMMER is a man in demand. The Stoke Sentinel reports that Potters boss Mark Hughes wants to bring him to the bet365 Stadium.

However, according to the Telegraph they will face competition from West Brom. The Baggies' interest does not, however, mean that JONNY EVANS would be allowed to join Manchester City.
