Jamie Carragher has implored Liverpool to target Jadon Sancho in the next two transfer windows.
Sancho faces an uncertain future at Borussia Dortmund, where he feels ‘humiliated and scapegoated’.
The winger was benched against Barcelona in midweek but scored in a 3-1 defeat and later told the media he was “not allowed to talk”.
Liverpool are among a number of clubs thought to be monitoring developments regarding Sancho, and Carragher hopes his former side act on their interest.
“I think Liverpool still lack one player which is an attacking player to really support the front three and almost make it like a front four,” he told Viasport.
“At the moment there’s still a big difference when one of the front three doesn’t play.
“We saw that at the weekend again when Salah was out – that time Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain played in the front three and that didn’t work. We’ve seen Origi – that doesn’t work.
“Maybe there’s talk of a man in the Bundesliga coming to England from Borussia Dortmund, maybe he’s someone who Liverpool may be looking at in Sancho, who a lot of other Premier League clubs are looking at.
“There has been some great signings for Liverpool in the past [in January]. You think of Van Dijk, Luis Suarez, Daniel Agger was a great player for Liverpool, Daniel Sturridge is another one.
“I would like to see an attacking player come in, someone with a bit more quality, maybe someone who could help them in the coming months going forward.
“I don’t think it’s an area which Klopp really looks at but I would expect it to be a really big summer for Liverpool, especially considering they didn’t sign anyone last summer.”
