Steve Howey has urged Brendan Rodgers to take advantage of Barcelona’s financial crisis and reunite with Philippe Coutinho at Leicester City.
Barcelona are looking to sell a host of players after exceeding La Liga’s wage limit. It has resulted in the Spanish giants being unable to register new signings, including the likes of Sergio Aguero and Memphis Depay, or officially tie Lionel Messi down to a new contract.
Should Leicester City sign Philippe Coutinho?
A loss of form and host of injuries have resulted in Coutinho being restricted to just 90 appearances.
But Howey, who featured for Leicester during his playing days, believes Coutinho would be able to rediscover his best form by working for a familiar face in Rodgers.
The Northern Irishman was in charge of Liverpool when Coutinho was at Anfield and Howey feels the creative midfielder would be a hit at the King Power Stadium.
Speaking exclusively to The Transfer Tavern, Howey said: “I think going there could be great for him and it could be good for Leicester.”
