Former Liverpool defender Steve Nicol has urged Jurgen Klopp to re-sign Philippe Coutinho. Coutinho left Anfield for Barcelona in a £142m deal in January 2018 but failed to impress at the Camp Nou. Currently on loan at Bayern Munich, Nicol is keen to see the 28-year-old head back to Merseyside, describing the move as a ‘no brainer’.
Steve Nicole said “Absolutely. Why wouldn’t you? I can’t think of one reason why you wouldn’t, The only place he’s excelled at is Liverpool. The place loves him, he loves the place. Can you imagine adding Coutinho to a squad that, right now are still champions of Europe even though they’re out of this year’s competition, and are going to win the Premier League? You’re going to add a player with the ability of Coutinho, who is going to come in and be in the same situation as a Timo Werner for example, where he is there to fight to get in the starting XI. If it’s cut-price, yeah. Listen, this guy’s making over £13m clear a year. He’s going to have to take a hit. The price to buy him is going to have to take a hit but if the money’s right, [it’s an] absolute no-brainer. If the money’s right, this would be absolutely fantastic for Liverpool.”
