Philippe Coutiho might make a spectacular comeback to Liverpool after struggling for three seasons to adjust to Barcelona’s style of play.
According to Marca, the 29-year-old is currently surplus to requirements at the club and is free to depart if a decent offer comes in. Liverpool could sign him for three reaons outlined below:
To win more titles, Liverpool needs a strong bench- Philippe Coutinho may not start games when he returns, but he can provide the club with greater attacking momentum when he comes in in the second half. The Brazilian international is gifted with clairvoyance and forethought, allowing him to set up scoring opportunities for others or himself.
Coutinho adds a new dimension to Liverpool’s attack-His ability to keep possession of the ball with poise and quality will allow Liverpool attackers to surge forward fast and overcome their opponents. Coutinho’s accurate long balls will find them quickly, allowing them to score a plethora of goals.
Coutinho will provide competition in both the midfield and attack for Liverpool– Coutinho is capable of dispatching Thiago Alcantra in midfield just like Barcelona’s Pedri who succeeded benching in Spanish national team.
If Jurgen Klopp decides to play Coutinho as a false nine, the Brazilian will then be free to drift into midfield, receive the ball, and charge forward to shoot or create scoring opportunities for Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah.
