The Reds have endured a difficult start to the year and are yet to win a Premier League game in 2017 following a dramatic dip in form.
Indeed, Liverpool’s last win in the top flight came back in 31 December against Manchester City, with the Reds now having dropped out of the top four in the race for the title.
Liverpool did not make any signings in the January transfer window after signing a number of players last summer.
And Carragher feels that the Reds are in serious need of reinforcements in the summer if they want to transform themselves into title contenders next season.
Speaking to Sky Sports on Sunday, Carragher said: “A major disappointment, whether it was down to the manager or the board, was not getting any reinforcements in in January.
“The players are there. I am not saying panic buy
“I am talking about in terms of numbers, Liverpool needed something. If you look at their bench, they haven’t got anything like what Manchester United have got, the teams they are trying to compete with.
“The fact that they haven’t reinforced from a position of strength – where they were in the league as the best challengers for Chelsea – has meant they have fallen away. They don’t have the squad to match the other teams.”
Liverpool take on Tottenham Hotspur at Anfield on Saturday evening as they look to get back to winning ways in the top flight.
