Andres Iniesta has admitted that he is hoping to see Philippe Coutinho leave Liverpool FC and sign for Barcelona.
The Brazilian’s future was a relentless source of speculation in the summer months as the Spanish giants were heavily linked with a move to sign him.
Coutinho himself was thought to be keen on a switch to Camp Nou but a move failed to materialise despite the playmaker having been reported to have handed in a transfer request.
There is bound to be plenty of fresh speculation linking Liverpool FC with a fresh move to Barcelona in the coming days as the January transfer window draws closer.
And Spanish midfielder Iniesta has done little to quell reports of a move to Camp Nou for Coutinho by admitting that he would be welcome at Camp Nou.
Iniesta is quoted as saying by the Daily Mirror: “Coutinho is a great team player with lots and lots of talent, he would be fantastic for us.
“He is equally adept with both feet, he links up well with other players, scores goal and gets between different phases and lines in attack, he would be what we want.
“His qualities fit into how we play and what we want and if the signing is finally complete, it would be great.”
It remains to be seen whether Liverpool FC will once again hold firm and keep hold of Coutinho in the January transfer window.
Coutinho will be expecting to feature for Liverpool FC when the Reds return to Premier League action after Christmas with a home clash against Swansea City on Boxing Day.
