Carragher: Liverpool must consider re-signing Barcelona star Coutinho.

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher says they should consider re-signing Barcelona star Philippe Coutinho.

The 26-year-old is also said to be on the radar of PSG and Chelsea but Carragher hopes Jurgen Klopp would make a move if Coutinho is allowed to leave.

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.

"It's one thing Man City have on us, they have Bernardo Silva, David Silva, Kevin De Bruyne and 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 be if it was a really good price for us."
