Redknapp Reckons Liverpool Should Ask For Sensational Swap Deal With Barca For Coutinho

Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona?

The transfer rumour which dominated the summer window is once again doing the rounds ahead of the market reopening in January.

Liverpool have reportedly slapped a whopping price tag of £127 million on Coutinho's head, with the club bracing themselves for a bid from the Catalans. Either in January or in the summer transfer window.

And following his heroics against Bournemouth on Super Sunday, Jamie Redknapp has weighed in on the transfer saga by proposing a swap deal with the La Liga leaders.

"Philippe Coutinho was sensational for Liverpool at Bournemouth. The Reds should enjoy him while they can before Barcelona come calling again in the summer," he told Daily Mail via Goal.

"Even if Liverpool receive in excess of the £138 million Barcelona bid last summer, there are few like-for-like players they can buy - while bringing in a number of players is not always the best option.

He reckons Liverpool should ask for Luis Suarez (!!) in a straight swap deal.


"Instead, Liverpool should ask Barcelona to swap Coutinho for Luis Suarez.

"The striker has not been as prolific as in recent seasons and the Liverpool fans would love a returning hero. It would be a great move for both the club and the Premier League," he added.

Suarez back to Anfield?

While Liverpool fans may be happy with that, it's surely an unrealistic offer, right?
