Liverpool transfers: Jamie Carragher expects the Reds to struggle without Barcelona-bound Luis Suárez

Jamie Carragher is tipping Liverpool to “find it difficult” without Luis Suarez next season if the Uruguayan joins Barcelona.

The 27-year-old forward is widely expected to complete a £75m move to Barcelona later this week after increasing speculation linking the South American with a switch to Camp Nou.

Suarez was an instrumental figure as the Reds finished as Premier League runners-up in May, netting 31 goals in 33 top-flight games and winning the PFA player of the year.

And Carragher, who played alongside Suarez for two-and-a-half seasons, admitted that he will be sorry to see the Uruguay international leave the Merseyside outfit.
