Liverpool are always on the lookout for a bargain. This window could see a bargain signing present itself in the form of an ex-Anfield hero. According to reports in Spain, Liverpool want Philippe Coutinho. Twitter has erupted.
Coutinho career spiral
Back in 2018 Liverpool sold Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona for a ridiculous £142m.
Although we were sad to see him go the money involved was just silly and an early indicator of where the Spaniard were headed.
Since his switch to Spain his career has been on a downward spiral.
The Brazilian failed to live up to his price tag.
Those at the Camp Nou grew frustrated and even loaned him out to Bayern Munich.
Whilst there Philly scored against Barcelona in the Champions League en route to the cup with German side.
Since returning to Barca his future has been perpetually in doubt, even more so now given that the club need to raise funds desperately.
Liverpool want Philippe Coutinho
There has always been rumours of a return.
This week the rumours have resurfaced.
According to Mundo Deportivo, as relayed by The Express, Liverpool are interested in Philippe Coutinho.
The report states that Spurs are also intent on the Brazilian.
However, it is claimed Liverpool would only move if a player left the attacking line.
Roberto Firmino would certainly be keen, he once labelled his international teammate as ‘phenomenal’.
Fans are excited about the prospect of a reunion.
