Ex-Premier League star Stan Collymore has asserted in his most recent segment for the Mirror that Frank Lampard would make his 'first misstep' as Chelsea chief if he somehow happened to sign Philippe Coutinho.
Chelsea were offered the opportunity to sign the 27-year-old from Barcelona this mid year for an expense of £75m.
The west London outfit keep on being connected with the previous Liverpool man however Collymore demands that Coutinho is one of the 'most misrepresented assaulting midfielders in the game'.
Coutinho has encountered huge battles at Barcelona since his marquee move a little more than two years prior.
According to BBC Sport, Barcelona concurred an arrangement worth up to a faltering £142m to sign Coutinho from Liverpool.
With all regard, this is ostensibly one of the most exceedingly terrible signings made in the course of the most recent few years. In the wake of being solidified out in Catalonia, Coutinho is spending this season on credit at Bayern Munich.
Here's some of what Collymore needed to state on the Brazil universal:
"In the event that Frank Lampard signs Philippe Coutinho it could well be his first misstep as Chelsea director."
"The Brazilian would support an Everton, a West Ham or possibly Wolves – level two Premier League clubs whose standard point is to complete somewhere in the range of 6th and eighth."
"He'd put bums on seats and offer the thought to supporters that their club is striving to break into the Champions League."
"In any case, he won't help a group that is as of now there show signs of improvement, since he is one of the most misrepresented assaulting midfielders in the game."
Collymore's whole segment on the assaulting midfielder was very condemning, the full piece can be perused here, Coutinho is marked a 'what tops off an already good thing player' who offers little in '90 percent of matches'.
The former target man even included that Coutinho won't help the Blues win trophies and emphasized that 'he isn't Eden Hazard'.
Taking into account that Chelsea have probably the best foundation in world football, which has created promising playmaker Mason Mount, the Blues ought to maybe hope to tackle their clear attacking issues from inside.
