Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher believes his former club are still lacking an attacking player in their ranks and they should make a mid-season move for Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund. The Reds have excelled in both the Premier League and Champions League this season but they have had to dig deep with a number of late winning goals.
The Merseyside outfit could not replicate the same during the recent 1-1 Champions League draw against Napoli and speaking after that match, Carragher stressed that the Reds could do with someone of Sancho’s calibre in the attack, he told Via Sport: “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.
“At the moment there’s still a big difference when one of the front three doesn’t play. 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.”
Liverpool are at the top of their Champions League group after five matches and they are scheduled to face Red Bull Salzburg during the final matchday. The Reds are currently three points ahead of Salzburg but they can’t remain complacent, given a slender victory for the Austrian outfit could knock them out, should Napoli manage a point against Genk.
Meanwhile, Sancho has been deemed to be unsettled at Dortmund over the past few weeks with suggestions that he has been made the scapegoat for the German side’s recent run of results. Sancho only made a substitute appearance during the recent Champions League clash against Barcelona but he still made a mark by scoring the consolation goal in a 3-1 defeat at the Camp Nou.
