Jamie Carragher has admitted that he would like to see Liverpool bring in a new goalscorer before the end of the transfer window.

Jurgen Klopp's men have made just one signing so far this summer, recruiting Ibrahima Konate from RB Leipzig in a deal worth around £36 million.

But with Manchester United moving for Jadon Sancho, and with Manchester City linked with the likes of Harry Kane and Jack Grealish, the Sky Sports pundit is eager for his former side to add some more firepower.

Speaking at an event connected to Soccer Aid, Carragher said: “I think in terms of numbers it [Liverpool’s recruitment] is not a problem, I think it is in terms of quality.

“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.

“But I am expecting a big season from [Sadio] Mane. He didn't have his best season but he's looking really sharp in pre-season, hopefully he can be the guy who can plug that gap in terms of goals.”
