Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest transfer talk for Tottenham on Sunday, July 12.

The buildup to the summer transfer window has now begun, with rumours and speculation continuing to swirl as Tottenham Hotspur eye possible reinforcements.

Spurs were among the biggest spenders during the January transfer window but are expected to be active again in the summer as Jose Mourinho continues to mould his squad.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest news on possible comings and goings at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Sunday morning's Tottenham Hotspur transfer talk news roundup:

Philippe Coutinho 'sets deadline for decision on future'

Barcelona attacker Philippe Coutinho will reportedly make a decision on his future once Bayern Munich's 2019-20 campaign has officially come to a close.

The Brazil international has spent the current season with Bayern and will be with the German champions until their participation in the Champions League is over.

Coutinho is allegedly surplus to requirements at Barca, with the Spanish champions thought to be keen to sell him in order to raise funds to bring Inter Milan's Lautaro Martinez to Camp Nou.

According to Mundo Deportivo, the South American is currently fully focused on Bayern, meaning that he has put all talk of his future on hold until August.

The Bundesliga giants are on course to make the quarter-finals of the Champions League as they have a 3-0 advantage over Chelsea after the first leg of their last-16 tie.

Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal have all previously been linked with the 28-year-old, who has scored nine times and contributed eight assists in 34 appearances for Der FCB this term.

Manchester City to rival Tottenham Hotspur for Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg?

Manchester City are reportedly considering whether to make a bid for Southampton midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg.

While the Denmark international has previously been regarded as a key man at St Mary's, the 24-year-old was recently stripped of the captaincy due to his desire to leave this summer.

With just one year remaining on his contract, Tottenham Hotspur have been heavily linked with an approach for the player before the beginning of next season.

However, according to the Daily Record, City are also monitoring the situation as they contemplate making new additions.

Although Pep Guardiola is well stocked for options in the middle of the pitch, City could arguably benefit from having a box-to-box midfielder in their ranks.

Despite his contract situation, Southampton may demand in excess of £15m for Hojbjerg.
