Four goals, two assists: Liverpool should refrain from pursuing Philippe Coutinho

The forward is struggling at the Nou Camp and a summer move back to the Premier League could be on the cards.

Liverpool are well in with a chance of claiming their first Premier League title this season under Jurgen Klopp.

The German is proving a real hit with the Anfield faithful but knows silverware is the next step.

Despite plenty of football left to play this season, the summer speculation is beginning to emerge.

One man who has filled lots of column inches already is former Red Philippe Coutinho.

The Brazilian joined the Catalan giants for a staggering £142 million (BBC Sport) in 2018.

Things haven’t quite gone according to plan for the man who made the choice to leave Anfield.

In 63 games for Barcelona, he has scored 19 goals and claimed 11 assists. This season he has just four goals and two assists in La Liga.

 

The Mirror have recently reported that Manchester United could be interested in the forward, with £100 million being touted.

There is no indication at this stage that Liverpool will rival the Red Devils for his signature.

The Reds should ensure that they stay out of the running too.

Coutinho made his bed when he chose to leave back in 2018 and valuation doesn’t represent value for money.

Four goals and two assists is an abysmal return at a club like Barcelona and Liverpool have moved on.

The 26-year-old earns around £200k-a-week (Total Sportek) and that kind of money would be better spent elsewhere by Liverpool.
