The Brazilian spent five-and-a-half seasons with the Reds, but following uncertainty surrounding his Barcelona future, strong reports suggest that he could make a shock move to the Toffees this summer.
Will Everton sign Philippe Coutinho this summer?
Coutinho still has more than two years left on his Barca deal but has endured a difficult time at the Camp Nou following his £145m move from Liverpool three years ago.
Having not appeared since late-December, Coutinho has been ruled out for the rest of the season.
“He’s a number 10 and can play on the left. I don’t think it would faze him because he played at Anfield, it’s not like a Nicky Barmby going from Everton to Liverpool,” Windass told This is Futbol.
“I think yes, because of the manager, that’s what appeals to people. The manager sells the club to players and he’s a great fit – they’ve done reasonably well compared to the last few years.
“I don’t think any player would turn their nose up, so that would be an interesting one if Coutinho wants to do that.”
