Liverpool have gotten everything right in the transfer market since Michael Edwards took over recruitment. The sporting director seems to have studied under Derren Brown such are his psychic powers – how did he get £19m for Dominic Solanke? One of Edwards’ best sales could be set for a Premier League return. Liverpool should re-sign Philippe Coutinho before their rivals bag him.

Liverpool had Barcelona’s eyes out in 2018 when we sold them Philly for £142m.

Since moving to the Camp Nou the Brazilian’s career has been on a downward spiral.

The little magician never got going in the Catalan capital and was out of the door within 18 months.

He is currently on loan at Bayern Munich but has failed to convince the Bavarian giants to make his loan move a permanent one, the common consensus is that Barca will have to find another buyer.

According to The Mirror, Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal and Spurs are all interested in taking the midfielder from Barcelona. Sport have recently quoted his price tag as €90m.

 

Whilst there are Kopites who have been more than satisfied with watching the diminutive playmaker’s career flatline since forcing his way out of Anfield, there can be no denying that he is an immensely talented footballer.

When Liverpool had Coutinho he was utterly unplayable. He chipped in with goals from midfield and unlocked defences up and down the country.

It would be verging on cognitive dissonance to suggest that he wouldn’t improve the current Liverpool side.

At the minute it can be argued that Jürgen Klopp is missing a spark and goals from midfield, Coutinho brings both of these in abundance.

To let him fall into the hands of our arch rivals in Manchester United or Chelsea would be a kick in the teeth, we need to swallow our pride and take him back.
