Philippe Coutinho's 'Big Dream' Is To Return To Anfield

Since Philippe Coutinho left Liverpool in 2018, it seems like every year he is linked with a move back to Anfield and this year is no different.

Liverpool seem to be looking for attackers and midfielders to bring solid competition for the likes of Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah, Jordan Henderson and more of their players.

With Gini Wijnaldum already departing and it likely that Divock Origi and Xherdan Shaqiri will be sold this summer, Jurgen Klopp will be searching Europe's top leagues for suitable replacements.

Some of the more prominent names have been Domenico Berardi, Donyell Malen, Florian Neuhaus and Youri Tielemans. 

However, none of these deals have been completed and everything is still in the air to whether or not Liverpool will be signing some these players. 

In recent news though, there has been a familiar name linked with the club once again.

Coutinho controversially left Liverpool in January 2018 for an astonishing fee of £142million, including add-ons.

He hasn't fulfilled his potential and his transfer to Barcelona has been disastrous for the Catalonian club.

They have recently been trying to sell or loan the Brazilian out, with Premier League clubs, Arsenal and Everton reportedly being interested. 

However, according to Spanish outlet Sport, Coutinho wants to leave Barcelona and it's his 'big dream' to return to Anfield this summer.

The report also claims Coutinho has three options on the table. Go out on loan, find a new club or try and rejoin Liverpool.

Although, the possibilities of the Brazilian joining backup with his former teammates are slim to impossible as Klopp doesn't see Coutinho in his plans for next season.
