Speaking to the Liverpool Echo, he said: "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.
"We lack that player in the squad. We have it in Lallana and Shaqiri but this is a different level of player.
"We have great midfield players who are all very similar.
"We could add something a little bit different but that would only be if it was a really good price for us."
