1. Philippe Coutinho (Bayern Munich)
It has been more of a steady rather than spectacular start to life at Bayern Munich for Philippe Coutinho, but it should only be a matter of time before he lights up the Bundesliga. Once regarded as one of world football’s brightest talents, the Brazilian was an absolute star for Liverpool and convinced Barcelona to fork out a reported £105million for his services.
While his time at Spain may not have gone according to plan, there looks to be no better place for Coutinho to rediscover his form than the Allianz Arena, which has been home to some of his most-famous compatriots including Giovane Elber, Ze Roberto, Rafinha and Lucio.
Having already shown glimpses of his quality against Schalke and Mainz, a top-form Coutinho would certainly strike fear in the hearts of all Bundesliga defences.
