Coutinho has three big elements going in his favour: his league, his nation and the fact he has 5* skills. All three of these things help Coutinho to be the perfect central attacking midfielder for any LaLiga, Brazil or hybrid side.

His a little too expensive for our liking, but you can understand why EA have priced him in such a range. There won't be many people completing him, but those that do will a top-tier CAM in return for their coins.
