Liverpool's current XI is largely unchanged from the side which lost in the Champions League final, while many of those players have played relentlessly since that game. Jamie Carragher explained on Monday Night Football why they must add new players in the summer transfer window. Football journalist - Richiereds Liverpool need to strengthen in three key areas this summer in order to be Premier League challengers again, according to Jamie Carragher - so who could Jurgen Klopp to get the champions firing again?
Liverpool's defeat to Manchester City on Sunday saw them slip 10 points behind the league leaders - which could become 13 points if Pep Guardiola's side win their game in hand - as the Reds' hopes of retaining their title all but evaporated at Anfield.
To respond and return to the heights they reached in the three seasons, Klopp must freshen up his squad this summer, with Carragher identifying three key positions the German should look at. Liverpool wouldn't have won the trophies they have done over the last two or three years if he'd rotated. They need a centre-back - maybe he has ed now in Ozan Kabak - they need someone to replace Wijnaldum, and they need someone in the front three.
That's what Liverpool need. We look at possible players Klopp and Sporting Director Michael Edwards may be targeting this summer:. With Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip all sidelined until the end of the season and Liverpool having still not ed a permanent replacement for Dejan Lovren, Carragher thinks Klopp has to bring in a new central defender this summer. Upamecano is currently one of Europe's most in-demand central defenders after an impressive season last time out with Leipzig, who he helped progress to the Champions League semi-finals.
However, Carragher has ly urged his former club to the player, who is reportedly Liverpool's Over the road Liverpool looking central-defensive target for next season. Whether he has the profile of Van Dijk, I think he is only 6ft 1in or 6ft 2in, so he is maybe not that aerial, but if he is the one they wanted, then bring it forward," the Sky Sports pundit told MNF back in October. Liverpool are also reportedly monitoring Upamecano's partner in Leipzig's three-man back line, although they are not the only Premier League club believed to be interested in ing Konate this summer.
The France U21 international, who ed the Bundesliga side on a free from Sochaux inmaybe a better - and cheaper - option than his compatriot, who is thought to be heading to Bayern Munich next season. And Klopp will be able to better assess the centre-back, who has not played since December 16 due to an ankle injury, when his team take on Leipzig in their upcoming Champions League last tie. With Georginio Wijnaldum still to a new contract at Anfield - the Dutchman's current deal expires this summer - Liverpool look like they will need to find a replacement for the player next season.
Goncalves, who can operate on the wing, or as a central midfielder - was actually brought in to replace Bruno Fernandes when the forward left Sporting to Man Utd in Januaryscoring 14 times in just 15 league games so far this campaign. Renato Sanches Lille Age: 23 Contract expires: There may be a few raised eyebrows at reports suggesting Liverpool are looking at the Lille midfielder to replace Wijnaldum, but the player - who was part of Portugal's Euro winning squad - has revived his ly faltering career since ing the Ligue 1 club from Bayern Munich in August The year-old is probably best remembered in this country for an ill-fated season-long loan spell with Swansea City in which saw him spend more time on the treatment table than the field of play as the Swans were relegated to the Championship.
However, Sanches's impressive form in his first two seasons at Lille has not only helped the club to surprisingly top the Ligue 1 standings, but it has also put him on the radar of Liverpool's scouts. Doubts have emerged of late about Mbappe's future in the French capital as the PSG superstar weighs up whether to extend his stay at the Parc des Princes beyond his current contract, which runs out in Real Madrid were understood to be leading the race for the France international striker, although AS claim that Liverpool are now the favourites to the player if he opts not to a new deal with his boyhood club.
And speaking in January, Mbappe said: "I want to think about what I want to do in the next few years, where I want to be, this is how my thinking goes.
But it is true that soon we will have to make a decision. If I it, it is to stay, and that deserves time for reflection. Raphinha Leeds United Age: 24 Contract expires: The forward only ed Leeds from Rennes in October, but he is already attracting interest from Liverpool, with France Football reporting the Brazilian tops the champions' shortlist of attacking players this summer.
And one person who has been particularly impressed by the year-old's impact since arriving at Elland Road - he has recorded four goals and four assists in 17 league games - is Carragher. You see that shot there before Bamford's goal against Palacethat's so typical of a wide man, that penetrating run that we talk about with Salah, Mane and Sterling, all the great wide players.
They make that run and he does. He has great quality on the ball. Play for free, entries by pm. Search Sky Sports. Liverpool's summer transfer targets: Who could Jurgen Klopp ? By Richard Morgan Football journalist - Richiereds Fill 2 Copy 11 Created with Sketch.
