Barcelona star to strengthen Liverpool's Premier League title bid?

Philippe Coutinho now 3/1 from 5/1 to make Liverpool move.

The protracted transfer of Antoinie Griezmann to Barcelona is one that seemed to rumble on for an incredibly long time with the French forward proving to be a player of exceptional skill that Barca desperately wanted to sign. The forward’s move is one that the reigning-Spanish champions will hope ends a lengthy stretch without a Champions League trophy, with the side having to watch arch rivals Real Madrid win the competition for most of the last few years. 

Griezmann’s arrival in the team makes it quite likely that there will be some departures from the Nou Camp this summer and one player that has been touted as likely to leave is former-Liverpool star Philippe Coutinho. The Brazilian has found things very difficult in recent years with his first team game time curtailed somewhat while some viewers have expressed their disappointment at his performances recently. 

According to bookmaker Betway, Liverpool seem likely to end his struggles in Spain, with the side coming into 3/1 from 5/1 to bring the player back to Anfield. French side PSG remain the favourites at 5/4, while Juventus are 20/1 to continue their summer spending spree by signing the Brazilian. 

“With Antoine Griezmann’s arrival, Philippe Coutinho’s opportunities at Barcelona look to be even more limited than they were last season and a departure from the Nou Camp looks likely,” Alan Alger of Betway told BettingPro. 

“PSG had gone odds-on to sign the Brazilian, but are now out to 5/4 as all the money has been for Coutinho’s old club Liverpool. A move back to Anfield now looks a real possibility at 3/1 as Jurgen Klopp seeks reinforcements in his side’s bid to win a first title since 1990.”
