Jamie Carragher urges Liverpool to make an attempt to re-sign Philippe Coutinho from Barcelona this summer.

Former Liverpool captain Jamie Carragher has urged the Reds to make an attempt to re-sign Philippe Coutinho from Barcelona in this summer's transfer window.

Coutinho left Anfield for Barca in January 2018 but has struggled to show his best form in Spain.

There have been suggestions that the Spanish champions would be prepared to cut their losses on a player who cost an initial £105m from the English giants.

Carragher has claimed that Jurgen Klopp's side should be looking to re-sign the Brazil international as he would bring a different option to the team.

"I wouldn't say I would be actively going to get him, but if there was a possibility of bringing Coutinho back for decent money, and Barca wanted to cut their losses a little bit because it hasn't worked out, then I'd do that," Carragher told the Liverpool Echo.

"Would he be welcomed back? I'm not sure. But he should be. I don't see any reason why he shouldn't be. We lack that player in the squad. We have it in [Adam] Lallana and [Xherdan] Shaqiri, but this is a different level of player.

"It's the one thing Man City have on us, they have Bernardo Silva, David Silva, Kevin De Bruyne. We don't have that type of player. We have great midfield players who are all very similar. We could add something a little bit different. But that would only really be if it was a good price for us."

Coutinho scored 54 times and registered 45 assists in 201 appearances for Liverpool before heading to Spain.
