Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher believes the Reds need to add quality to their first-team squad if they are to challenge for the Premier League title again this season.
The Sky Sports pundit thinks his former club need to add more goals to the team in order to compete against the likes of Manchester City, Chelsea and Manchester United:
“If we didn’t bring in another addition it may be difficult to knock Man City off the top, and let’s not forget Chelsea, the European champions, and Manchester United, who have had a great window with (Raphael) Varane and (Jadon) Sancho. I’d like to see someone who could get goals, whether that’s from midfield or part of the front three. I am just wary a little bit with Liverpool, after last season going into this season, as to whether there are enough goals in the team for them to go and win the title.”
Carragher is certainly right to point out that Jurgen Klopp’s side need something extra to ensure they keep themselves in the title fight.
The front three began to look pretty stale last campaign and, combined with the departure of Georginio Wijnaldum, their squad has been weakened. That is in contrast to their rivals who have been strengthening over the summer.
While defensively they are well set, following the addition of Ibrahima Konate, supporters would feel a lot more comfortable if Liverpool managed to sign a forward and another midfielder before the transfer window closes next month.
