Liverpool are reportedly interested in signing the Barcelona ace.
According to a report from Spanish media outlet Mundo Deportivo, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is prepared to forgive Philippe Coutinho and bring him back to Anfield this summer.
The 27-year-old has looked a shadow of his former self at the Camp Nou, however, racking up just 21 goals and 11 assists in 76 appearances in all competitions for the Catalan giants.
And now Mundo Deportivo claims that Liverpool want to re-sign the mercurial South American, although they are not prepared to pay an extortionate fee for his services.
According to ESPN, Barcelona could be willing to sell Coutinho for around £90 million.
Despite the fact that Coutinho is not the most popular figure on Merseyside, he would surely be welcomed back after a while, if he started to produce the goods that Reds fans have become so familiar with over the years.
There will of course be Liverpool fans who believe that Klopp should never bring Coutinho back. They have, after all, done just fine without him.
On his day, however, the Brazil international is a magical player, and if Liverpool manage to re-sign him this summer, they might just be unbeatable next season.
