Liverpool hero Jamie Carragher has called for the Reds to sign Jadon Sancho and Timo Werner in the summer transfer window following this week’s Champions League matches.
The Reds suffered a 1-0 defeat to Atletico Madrid, while the same night saw Sancho pulling the strings for Borussia Dortmund in their impressive victory over Paris Saint-Germain.
On Wednesday, Werner scored the only goal of the game for RB Leipzig against Tottenham from the penalty spot, and both have been heavily linked with transfers to Chelsea in the past.
However, Carragher believes that both players could be an asset to Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool and explained why recruits in the forward areas may be needed.
“Things can change very quickly. If you look at Tuesday night, the big problem for Liverpool is when one of those front three are not playing,” he told ViaSport.
“Sadio Mane had to come off and the player they bring on in is Divock Origi, who is a Liverpool legend because of what happened last year at the Wanda Metropolitano, but it’s not quite good enough for the best team in the world to be bringing that quality on.
“Liverpool do need a top attacking player to come in the summer. Sancho or Werner? I’ll take both.”
