FC Barcelona star Andres Iniesta believes Philippe Coutinho would be a good signing for the Catalan giants.
Rumours of Coutinho joining Barca has once again resurfaced in the Spanish media ahead of the January transfer window.
The La Liga outfit have had a number of bids rejected in the past, while Coutinho also reportedly handed in a transfer request in the last transfer window.
However, the Barca veteran insists he does not see Coutinho as competition in his position.
"I see him as a great player with a lot of talent who uses both feet, creates goals, combines very well and finds space between midfield and attack," Iniesta told Mundo Deportivo.
"He is a player with a profile quite like ours and would be a great signing if he finally arrives.
"I do not see him as my competition but as a lift for the club."
