Cape Town - Outgoing Barcelona fullback Dani Alves has advised Liverpool midfielder Philippe Coutinho to consider the idea of moving to one of Europe's biggest clubs.
Coutinho has been a revelation since joining Liverpool from Inter Milan for £8.5m in 2013. He played a crucial role in helping Liverpool finish second in the Premier League in 2013/14 and was one of few positives in a difficult campaign for the Reds this term, contributing eight goals and five assists in 26 league games this term.
The Brazil international cleaned up at the Liverpool end of season awards, claiming four accolades including Player of the Year, Goal of the Season, Player's Player of the Year and Best Performance of the Season.
The 23-year-old is currently in America with the Brazil squad for the Copa America along with Alves, who believes the playmaker would thrive at a club like Barcelona.
"Football is about living the moment," Alves told Yahoo Esportes.
"Liverpool have history but you should consider playing for top Champions League sides. He has the quality to play for Barcelona."
Alves himself looks set to depart the Catalan club after agreeing a deal to move to Juventus on a free transfer ahead of next season.
