Carragher: Liverpool need to buy in January

Liverpool may be joint top of the Premier League and were the top flights highest spending club in the summer, but former Reds defender Jamie Carragher reckons that Jurgen Klopp needs to strenghten his squad again in the January transfer market.

Carragher reckons Liverpool are badly missing a creative midfielder who can play in the number 10 role, after the Anfield outfit failed to sign Lyon playmaker Nabil Fekir in the summer.

Speaking after Liverpool’s 0-0 draw against Manchester City last Sunday Carragher said:

“If Liverpool are in a really good position in January, I think they’ve got to be looking to address that midfield area,” he told Sky Sports.

“It’s not even necessarily having someone who comes in and plays every single game. They just haven’t even got anyone like that in the squad. Adam Lallana is too injury prone.

“Even if Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain comes back, Naby Keita goes in or Fabinho goes in they are all the same. Liverpool don’t play with a No.10, but there’s no David Silva or Bernardo Silva or a player like that in the squad.

“I’m not talking about that player playing every week. It’s just the fact of having someone like that in the squad to turn to when you feel you need that player.”
