Former Liverpool vice-captain Jamie Carragher has had his say on the transfers being targeted by manager Jurgen Klopp.
Carragher was speaking to 5times.co.uk in an exclusive interview about his thoughts and views on various topics around the club.
And the ex-England defender has said that he feels that he things would have moved on further by now in the market.
“To be honest, I think we were all hoping that we would have been a lot happier at the stage.” he said.
“However, you’ve got to have patience. I’m sure the club are working 24/7 behind the scenes to bring players in, not only to keep the supporters happy, but to strengthen the squad for the big season ahead.
“I mentioned a lot last season that our squad isn’t strong enough. Despite the first XI being very good, with Champions League football coming up the squad needs a few more additions and these numbers are yet to come in.
“Saying this though, I think Jurgen Klopp is looking to bring in quality rather than quantity, which is something that I’m personally happy with too.” he said.
Carragher believes that the two main targets, Naby Keita and Virgil Van Dijk, will be resolved – but only one of them this year.
“Regarding Keita, I don’t think that Klopp will go out and buy another midfielder. I think he would be willing to wait until next season as supposedly Keita has a buyout clause.” he said.
“I reckon the Van Dijk saga will go right down to the wire. I don’t think Liverpool have ended all their interest in him at all. Nevertheless, if we go into the new season with what we’ve got now, I think there will be a lot of trepidation amongst the Liverpool fans.” he finished.
