After making his £142million move from Barcelona to Liverpool, Philippe Coutinho has been linked with a return.

Amid the speculations, former Reds player Steve Nicol has urged Liverpool to re-sign the star.

“Philippe Coutinho could play where he played when he left which is part of the front three but he also did a stint in the middle three as well,” Nicol told ESPN FC.(via Mirror)

“He’s already shown in the Premier League that he can work on both these positions. What you’re trying to do constantly is bring in players that not only make your squad better but make everybody in your starting eleven better.

“Of course, to have the quality of him, he’s now pushing somebody like [Sadio] Mane or [Mohamed] Salah on the other side.

“You’re just talking about making Liverpool better. That’s what’s going to be Liverpool’s problem. How do they make the squad, first of all, but even the starting eleven even better?

“One of the reasons why I think City did Liverpool last year was because they had more goalscorers. Now you’re adding a goalscorer in Coutinho. That could be that one-point difference.”
