Catalan newspaper Sport are making an attempt to drag Liverpool back into the Philippe Coutinho transfer saga.

It’s been made clear from the Anfield end of a potential deal that a return from Barcelona is very unlikely, yet Sport insist the Brazilian isn’t giving up hope of the move happening.

Tottenham, Leicester City and Arsenal are all credited with interest in the Barcelona player, who spent last season on loan at Bayern Munich, but it’s made clear Coutinho’s ‘main wish’ is to join Liverpool.

He played his best football there and since pushing his way out of Liverpool, and towards a Barcelona who didn’t really know what to do with him, things haven’t reached the same heights.

At the same time, Jurgen Klopp’s side have excelled, and won the Champions League and Premier League over two seasons.

Sport say Klopp is currently looking more towards Bayern’s Thiago, and whilst Coutinho to Liverpool remains unlikely, he’s not completely given up yet.
