Steven Gerrard believes Jurgen Klopp needs to sign a centre-half and a central midfielder to improve his Liverpool team.

The Reds booked their place in the Champions League group stage on Wednesday night thanks to a 6-3 aggregate win against Hoffenheim in the playoffs.

Liverpool eased to a 4-2 victory over the Bundesliga outfit at Anfield thanks to goals from Emre Can, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino.

The Merseyside outfit have signed Salah from Serie A giants AS Roma in a £39m deal last month as well as recruiting Chelsea teenager Dominic Solanke and Hull City defender Andy Robertson.

The Reds have already rejected three offers from Barcelona for Brazil international Philippe Coutinho and the La Liga giants are rumoured to be preparing a fourth bid worth around £136m for the No10.

Former Liverpool captain Gerrard is hoping Klopp will secure two more additions before the close of the summer transfer window next week.

“I don’t want to name any names, not naming names,” Gerrard told BT Sport on Wednesday night.

“Maybe one in defence and maybe a centre midfielder as well, just to give you two good players in every position.”

Liverpool played out a 3-3 draw with Watford at Vicarage Road in their Premier League opener earlier this month.

The Reds secured their first Premier League win of the season on Saturday thanks to 1-0 win against Crystal Palace.
