Liverpool urged to re-sign 'creative genius' Coutinho
Philippe Coutinho is a "creative genius", according to Phil Thompson, who would like to see the Barcelona playmaker retrace his steps in the summer transfer window.
Coutinho established himself as one of the finest young players in Europe during his five-year spell at Anfield and became the second most expensive player in the world when Barca snapped him up for €160 million (£139m/$175m) in January 2018.
The 27-year-old has, however, been unable to transfer his impressive form from the Premier League to La Liga, despite helping the Blaugrana retain their Spanish crown during his first full season at Camp Nou.
