Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has suggested on social networking site Twitter that he would love to see former Tottenham Hotspur star Luka Modric back in the Premier League.

Modric was on the books of North London outfit Tottenham from 2008 until 2012.

During his time at White Hart Lane, the Croatia international midfielder established himself as one of the best players in the Premier League.

In the summer of 2012, Spanish and European giants Real Madrid came calling and signed Modric from Tottenham.

Modric is on international duty at the moment, playing for Croatia at the ongoing Euro 2016 finals in France.

The former Dinamo Zagreb star scored the only goal of the match between Turkey and Croatia in Group D on Sunday.
