The Brazil international is expected to depart Camp Nou again in the next transfer window, but a return to Anfield may not be offered to him
Liverpool “haven’t missed” Philippe Coutinho since offloading him to Barcelona and the Brazil international now “wants” a return to the Reds “more than they need him”, says Neil Mellor.
A potential retracing of the South American’s steps to Merseyside has been mooted ahead of the transfer window. With Coutinho having struggled for form at Camp Nou and during a loan spell at Bayern Munich, he is expected to be on the move again when the market opens.
Many are expecting the 28-year-old to head back to England, with the Premier League having proved to be a happy hunting ground in the past. It does, however, remain to be seen whether Jurgen Klopp will be joining the chase for a familiar face.
