Coutinho, the Only Premier League Player to Fit Barca, Says Neymar

By  Football Pulp - 24 March 2017

The Brazilian and Barcelona star striker, Neymar, believes that Liverpool’s Philippe Coutinho is the only Premier League player to fit in Barça’s current squad. The member of the MSN insists that he would love to see Coutinho play for Barça, and that joining Blaugrana would be the right decision for his countryman, Coutinho.

Coutinho has been linked with Barça for a long time now. Barça’s reported target has been on an impressive run, and Neymar is of the view that playing along Coutinho would help him as well.

“A Premier League player that I would like to have in Barcelona is Coutinho,” he told the Daily Mail.

“I believe Philippe Coutinho is a player that would totally fit in Barcelona.”

The talented Liverpool sensation was outstanding last season, but has only managed to score six goals and has five assists to his name this season. The current season’s tally is in no way justified to measure Coutinho’s talent and undermining it would be a grave mistake.

The 25-year-old believes that his countryman has his own competitive edge that will help him find a place in Barça’s attacking pair. Well, Coutinho is no doubt an exceptional talent but playing along Messi and Suarez and justifying his place may be a challenging task for him. Though he has committed his future with Liverpool, Coutinho can still move from Anfield if a lucrative offer is placed from Camp Nou.
