Philippe Coutinho has agreed to return to Liverpool FC to work with Jurgen Klopp again, according to a report in Italy.

Website Calciomercato, as quoted by the Daily Express, is reporting that the Brazilian midfielder is happy to return to the 18-time English champions this summer.

The same article states that the Merseyside outfit are working on a potential deal to re-sign their former number 10 to bolster their attack ahead of the new season.

According to the same story, the Reds have offered FC Barcelona a two-year loan deal with an option for a permanent £88m deal.

The report goes on to state that FC Barcelona are looking to offload Coutinho to Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain after the Spanish giants signed Antoine Griezmann in a huge deal at the weekend.

Coutinho moved to FC Barcelona in a £142m deal from Liverpool FC in the 2018 January transfer window to end a five-year spell at the six-time European champions.

The 26-year-old has struggled to make a notable impact at FC Barcelona since his move to the Camp Nou despite leaving Liverpool FC as one of the best players in the Premier League.

The Reds have reached successive Champions League finals since Coutinho’s departure.

Liverpool FC lost 3-1 to Real Madrid in Kiev in 2018 before the Reds were 2-0 winners against Tottenham Hotspur in Madrid at the start of June.
