Liverpool have been linked with a Philippe Coutinho move this summer as Barcelona are desperate for a suitor. The association has great financial difficulties and urgently needs spending to raise its money.

Liverpool have little interest in bringing Coutinho back this summer as Barcelona are desperate for a seller.

The Brazilian left the Reds for his dream club back in 2018 after telling them he wanted to leave, but it quickly turned into a nightmare.

A whopping £ 135m fee was placed on the playmaker, but he did little to repay a fraction of that fee.

This resulted in a number of managers trying to sell the Brazil international but struggled to recoup the price they had spent three years earlier.

According to Gazzetta, Barcelona are doing their best again and have asked Leicester, Wolves and West Ham to move through Coutinho’s agent, Kia Joorabchian.

Liverpool have been consulted but their stance appears to be that they are not interested.

Jürgen Klopp does not use a system that would get the best out of the 29-year-old better than No. 10.

That means a return to Anfield would likely end similar to his sultry days in Catalonia.

The Reds have generally had a quiet transfer window too, just looking for a decent bargain instead of injecting the cash.

Ibrahima Konate is leaving RB Leipzig for around £ 35m to bolster Liverpool’s backline.

But he was the only significant purchase on Merseyside in that transfer window while there were ties to several midfielders.

After the departure of Georginio Wijnaldum, Klopp is aiming for a replacement, who will be shortlisted with Yves Bissouma, Florian Neuhaus and Renato Sanches, among others.
