Carragher Wants Coutinho Liverpool Return
Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher says that he would still like to see Phillipe Coutinho return to Anfield.
Coutinho left Liverpool for Barcelona in January 2018 for a sum of £114m, but the move has not gone well, igniting rumours of a return to Liverpool.
Jurgen Klopp says a deal would be too expensive for the Reds to do this summer, but former Liverpool defender Carragher thinks they should move for their former player.
“I still think they could add a creative player,” Carragher told Pundit Arena. “They tried to sign one last season in (Nabil) Fekir, he’s actually gone this summer for a lot cheaper (joining Real Betis for €19.7m).
“I said it before, I’d love to see Liverpool bring Coutinho back if that was possible in any way. Obviously, it hasn’t worked out for him at Barcelona. I just think that would be a great addition.
“You’ve got [Adam] Lallana and [Xherdan] Shaqiri in those positions, but they’re not Coutinho. He would give Liverpool something that they don’t have compared to City.”
