Jamie Carragher has urged Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp to splash the cash on bringing in a new goalkeeper and defender in the summer transfer window.

The Reds are currently in a battle to secure a top-four finish in the Premier League as Klopp looks to steer Liverpool back into the Champions League in his first full season in charge at the club.

There is bound to be plenty of speculation linking Liverpool with a host of players as the summer transfer window draws ever nearer.

Liverpool have been one of the Premier League’s most exciting attacking teams this season.

And former Reds defender Carragher feels that Liverpool are in need of defensive reinforcements in the summer transfer window.

Writing in his column for The Daily Mail, Carragher said: “If Liverpool want to progress, Klopp must act in the summer.

“Loris Karius and Simon Mignolet don’t give me any confidence and Mignolet created nervousness in the first minute against Bournemouth when he dribbled the ball out of his area.

“Klopp, I believe, needs a new No 1 but he also needs to find an axis he can rely on in the middle of his defence, like the way Mats Hummels and Nevan Subotic worked in tandem for him at Borussia Dortmund.”

Liverpool are aiming to break back into the top four after the Reds finished eighth and without a trophy last season, despite reaching the Europa League and EFL Cup finals.
