Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo (as per the Leicester Mercury) claim Brendan Rodgers, who signed Coutinho for Liverpool in 2013, is keen on bringing the 29-year-old back to the Premier League.

The move would make a lot of sense for player and club alike, especially given the Reds have previously blocked the Brazilian’s potential path to Anfield.

Coutinho hasn’t been the same player since swapping Liverpool for Barcelona

Last summer, we at Empire of the Kop revealed Liverpool had turned down the chance to re-sign Coutinho upon the expiry of his loan deal with Bundesliga outfit Bayern Munich.

The Brazilian is said to see a potential return to the Reds as a ‘dream’ scenario, as reported by SPORT, but his wish seems to be more of a fantasy than it is realistic.
