Jamie Carragher questions new Liverpool signing ahead of Arsenal opener

Jamie Carragher admits that he cannot see where Georginio Wijnaldum will fit into Liverpool's plans this season

Jamie Carragher has admitted that he is not quite sure where Georginio Wijnaldum will fit into Liverpool’s plans this season.

The Reds bought the 25-year-old Dutchman from Newcastle United earlier in the summer as Jurgen Klopp prepares for his first full campaign in charge at Anfield.

Liverpool are currently gearing up for their first Premier League game of the season as they prepare to take on Arsenal at The Emirates on Sunday afternoon.

Carragher admits that he is unsure where the midfielder will slot into Klopp’s set-up ahead of their Premier League opener in north London.

Speaking in an interview with Sky Sports News HQ, Carragher said: “I like Wijnaldum but I’m not quite sure where his best position is or where he will fit in.

“It looks like he will play tucked in on the left if Liverpool play a three-man central midfield – but if they don’t play that way then I struggle to see where he will fit in.”

Liverpool finished in eighth place in Klopp’s first season in charge at Anfield after he was brought in as Brendan Rodgers’ successor last October.
