Jamie Carragher thinks Liverpool need a “top attacking player” this summer but doubts the finances will be there to support such a move.
Manchester United’s chief financial officer Cliff Baty revealed on Thursday that the Old Trafford giants “estimate that Covid-19 had a negative impact of roughly £23m” on their revenues until the end of March.
Carragher thinks Liverpool will have been similarly hit by the pandemic and that they may have to wait to land reported targets such as RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner.
“I think there was a good chance of it [Werner joining Liverpool] happening before the pandemic happened,” Carragher told Sky Sports.
“But financially now you don’t know what state clubs are in. I actually saw something on Twitter before about Man United’s financial results so, you would expect Liverpool to be pretty similar [as to] how they’ve been affected.
“I am sure that will affect the transfer market.”
Carragher added: “I don’t think Liverpool can complain too much with the squad they’ve got at the moment. They’ve lost one league game all season and one last season.
“There’s certainly not too much that needs too change but I do feel a top attacking player is needed but if the finances aren’t there, they aren’t there.”
