"Someone Lined Up" - Jamie Carragher Drops Liverpool Transfer Update

Ex-Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher has stated his former club aren't planning to bring in another midfielder this transfer window.

The Reds have had a relatively strong summer so far, bringing in Uruguayan star Darwin Nunez for a fee of up top £85M, and signing young talents Calvin Ramsay and Fabio Carvalho.

But many feel Klopp's side are still lacking in the centre of the park, with two current starters Jordan Henderson and Thiago being on the wrong side on 30.

Speaking on Sky Sports' The Overlap, when asked about the topic, the 44-year-old stated: “No, they’re not,”  

“I think Liverpool could still do with someone in midfield, not in terms of numbers-wise but in terms of quality-wise and I think - notoriously, how Liverpool have done their transfers - they wait for who they want.”

“When they didn't get Van Dijk that time, they waited and they gave it to January, even though most fans were saying ‘you’ve got to go buy another centre-back’.” 

“They don't panic. Even when all their centre-backs were injured in the same season, in January, they brought a couple of centre-backs in but on-loan.”

“They didn’t buy anyone because they didn't get who they wanted, which was Konate, and they waited. And I just think Liverpool - they’re not daft. The first-choice midfield three right now is quite old, with all three getting into their 30s.

“But Liverpool are prepared to wait and I think that's one of the reasons why they're so good in the transfer market. So they must have someone lined up next summer.”

The Reds have been linked with a host of midfielders this summer, most notably Jude Bellingham, who Jurgen Klopp is is said to be a huge admirer of.

The England international has already made 15 appearances for the national team at the age of just 19 and the Merseyside club are set to make a move from him next year.

Dortmund are not keen to lose two of their key players in the same window, following Erling Haaland's move to Man City.
