Liverpool are in need of investment this summer. The Reds have to solve some problem areas in the squad and they need to do so as soon as possible. The side’s title defence was derailed by an injury crisis, we can’t let that happen again. Jamie Carragher has called for Liverpool to make signings in every area.
Liverpool title defence derailed
The Reds struggled in the 2020/21 campaign.
It all fell apart in the autumn when Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez were ruled out for the season due to knee injuries.
From there on out it was always going to be a struggle for Jürgen Klopp’s side.
They managed to battle to top at Christmas but thereafter the wheels came off.
From January onwards fatigue set in and the front three struggled for form.
Jamie Carragher calls for Liverpool signings
Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has called for a number of Liverpool signings.
The former Anfield defender has told The Athletic that sweeping additions are needed.
When asked by James Pearce what needs to be done, Carra replied:
“Through the spine, there should be an addition in every area.
“They’ve got the CB in Konate but they need a midfielder to replace Wijnaldum and an attacking player to add more goals. This team isn’t finished but it definitely needs a bit of help.”
What RTK has to say
We can’t help but agree with Carragher here.
Unfortunately we can’t see such sweeping signings being made.
The Reds need reinforcements but such reinforcements cost money.
We’ll just have to pray that Michael Edwards can trick someone into paying £50m for Xherdan Shaqiri.
