Jurgen Klopp told to strengthen two positions this summer

    Liverpool icon Jamie Carragher has urged Jurgen Klopp to consider bringing in an attacker and a left-back in the upcoming transfer window

    The newly-crowned Premier League champions have already made it clear that there will be no big-money signings during the summer transfer window.

    Before the coronavirus crisis crippled Liverpool’s finances, the Reds were poised to make a move for Timo Werner, who ended up swapping RB Leipzig for Chelsea.

    Werner himself has admitted that he sees Anfield as his preferable destination, but a lack of funds saw Liverpool abandon their interest in the German forward in the end.

    Jurgen Klopp has also recently revealed that he has no intention of making hefty investments in the coming months, insisting that he will try to introduce teenagers from the youth academy instead.

    However, Klopp won’t be able to count on Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah for a substantial chunk of the 2020-21 season due to their commitments in the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations.

    Also, Adam Lallana, Xherdan Shaqiri, and Nathaniel Clyne have all been deemed surplus to requirements and are likely to leave at the end of the 2019/20 campaign.

    Therefore, Klopp will probably have to add a couple of new faces to his squad in the summer to make sure Liverpool remain competitive on multiple fronts next season.

    Former Reds defender, Jamie Carragher, has now told the former Borussia Dortmund boss to consider investing in an attacker and a backup option for Andy Robertson.

    “The obvious thing is to win again,” Carragher told the Liverpool Echo, as relayed by the Daily Express.

    “I wouldn’t say ‘one title is not enough’ as I am not a big believer in saying you have to do this or that.

    “If you isolate a season and say you were the best team in the league that season, end of story.

    “Now next season, things change. People get bought, players get sold, it’s a different league.

    “Now I don’t think Liverpool themselves are going to head into the transfer market, and it will only be next year when we can if that was right or wrong.

    “But most of the reasons financially are down to the situation that we are in right now, so you can’t be too critical of the club on that score.

    “But I think what they have now – I would still like them if they possibly could to add an attacking talent to the front three.

    “And maybe add some sort of back up for Andy Robertson.

    “They are well stocked in midfield and centre-back, I think Neco Williams will be great cover for Trent (Alexander-Arnold) and I just think an extra attacker and possibly looking at Lallana and Shaqiri moving on, so maybe just an extra couple of bodies in there.

    “But I am confident Liverpool can do again what they have done this season.”
