CARRAGHER URGES LIVERPOOL TO MAKE 3 SIGNINGS
Premier League club Liverpool are expected to be a busy side this summer when the transfer window opens and are looking likely to have a couple of players in mind they want to sign ahead of the new season. While it is unclear how many players they are willing to bring into the club, Jamie Carragher has urged them to make three key signings if they are going to be serious about challenging for titles next season.
The Liverpool legend said that the club’s current crop of players do not have the spine to be Liverpool players and some of them need to be replaced so the team can take a better shape. Liverpool have suffered a lot on the injury front this season, with a couple of their stars suffering several injures this season, including captain Virgil van Dijk.
However, both Van Dijk and his defensive partner Joe Gomez, who will also miss the rest of the season through injury, will be welcomed back to the squad ahead of the start of next season. One of the players who have been linked with a move to Anfield is Ibrahima Konate. The defender currently plays for German Bundesliga side RB Leipzig and has been touted as one of the first names on the list of the Reds transfer targets, but the rumors have not been strong enough.
Speaking of departures, the club could lose Georgio Wijnaldum on a free at the end of the season and has been linked with a move to Barcelona after refusing to sign a contract extension at Anfield.
And according to Carragher, the club should sign a string central defender, a combative midfielder, and a proven forward, insisting that making these three signings will go a long way in confirming that they are interested in being genuine title contenders next season.
