Iniesta: Coutinho would be a great signing


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."
