Real Madrid misfit James Rodriguez reportedly wants to reignite his career at Liverpool.

The Colombian wants to 'do a Coutinho' by replacing Philippe Coutinho in the Anfield engine room.

Coutinho famously kicked on his career at Liverpool after a disappointing spell at Inter Milan - and is now at Barcelona.

Rodriguez, who shot to fame with a string of eye-catching performances during the 2014 FIFA World Cup, was sent out on a two-year loan by Real Madrid to Bayern Munich in the summer.

But has only started 11 games this season so far, scoring three goals and providing six assists in the league.

El Gol Digital say Rodriguez, who will head back to the Bernabeu at the end of the season after an impressive time in the Bundesliga, now wants to try his hand in England.

And Liverpool is his apparently preferred destination.
