Brazilian Coutinho will thrive in Premier League as Chelsea urged to complete deal
Owen Hargreaves has backed Barcelona flop Philippe Coutinho to thrive should he return to the Premier League, amid interest from Chelsea.
There is no doubt that we are keen to improve certain areas of the pitch at the end of the season and bring in the type of players that add something special to the side, and that has led to speculation linking Coutinho with a move.
Now, amid the speculation, former Red Devils midfielder Hargreaves believes Coutinho can still have a huge impact in England’s top flight and has urged the club to make a move during the summer window.
‘I love his game, I love him as a player. He is obviously going through a bit of a tough time after leaving Liverpool,’ said Hargreaves on the Metro
‘Barca didn’t work and Bayern hasn’t really worked, but there is still plenty of time and I would never count him out.
‘I would love to see him back in the Premier League. He makes a lot of teams better. ‘Premier League teams are probably the only ones with the capacity to sign him and, let’s be honest, when he was here he was a dream to watch.
‘If Liverpool are missing one thing it is probably a No.10ish player. I know they probably don’t need him because that front three are so good as is the balance in midfield.
‘There are a lot of rumours about Chelsea, even Man United. There are a lot of teams where if I was sporting director, surely his name is on a lot of teams’ lists to come in and make a big impact.
‘The question is, does he do it on loan again or is it a sale, because it doesn’t look like he’s going to stay at Barcelona.’
WE WOULD BE CRAZY NOT TO MAKE A MOVE!
