Barcelona have reportedly offered Liverpool to sign Philippe Coutinho again this summer. The Brazilian international was considered one of the best attacking midfielders in the world during his time on Merseyside but has struggled to repeat that form since joining Barcelona in January 2018.
According to HOW, Barcelona have offered Philippe Coutinho a return to Liverpool. Barcelona reportedly still owe the Reds up to £ 40m as part of their fee for the former Inter Milan man and are reluctant to spend more money on the attacking midfielder.
Philippe Coutinho signed a contract worth 160 million euros three years ago, making him the third most expensive player in football history. The former Liverpool midfielder struggled to settle at Camp Nou and was eventually loaned to Bayern Munich for the 2019-20 season.
Coutinho was able to regain his form during his time with the Bundesliga giants and helped them win the triple in his only season with the club. However, FC Bayern Munich decided against exercising its purchase option at the end of the season.
The 28-year-old was heavily linked with a return to the Premier League last summer. Tottenham Hostpur, Arsenal and Chelsea were reportedly interested in signing the midfielder, but Coutinho chose to stay at Barcelona and fight for his place under Ronald Koeman.
The Brazilian has been hit by injuries this season and has managed to make only 14 appearances for Barcelona in all competitions. The club will try to reduce its losses through the sale this summer.
Liverpool have not been able to sign a replacement for Philippe Coutinho since leaving the club in 2018. The Reds have suffered a lack of creativity and goals this season and are reportedly in the market for an attacking midfielder this summer.
Barcelona’s Philippe Coutinho could be the perfect signing for Liverpool this summer
At 28, Philippe Coutinho should be at the height of his football career. Injuries and lack of confidence from the Barcelona coaches have hampered the midfielder’s progress, but a possible move to the Premier League could help rejuvenate his career.
Barcelona will reportedly be looking for a roughly £ 40million transfer fee for Coutinho this summer. Liverpool fans would love to see their former star return to Anfield. The Brazilian could be the perfect new signing for Liverpool based on his experience under Jürgen Klopp and in the Premier League.
