Jamie Carragher would love to see Liverpool bring Philippe Coutinho back to Anfield this summer.

Coutinho left the Reds in January 2018 to join Barcelona in a deal worth up to £144m – but the Brazilian has struggled to settle at the Nou Camp while Liverpool have gone on to claim Champions League glory.

The playmaker has since been linked with a return to Liverpool as well as transfers to numerous big clubs around Europe – but Klopp has insisted the club won’t be bringing him back this summer.

However, Carragher has not completely given up hope that Coutinho could return with Liverpool lacking a “creative player” in his opinion.

“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.”
