Liverpool considering shock move for Brazilian star with club willing to sell

Liverpool are reportedly considering joining Chelsea and Manchester United in a move for out of favour Barcelona star Philippe Coutinho.

Coutinho struck 54 times and produced 45 assists during his first stint on Merseyside and could well be making a surprise return to Anfield under Jurgen Klopp if the latest reports are to believed.
