Former Liverpool star Jamie Carragher is waiting for the team to spend big money next summer and believes Jurgen Klopp should take a look at his former club Borussia Dortmund to land the players he needs.

The former center-back says Jadon Sancho should be an option for the Reds to fill an attacking berth. They are the current Champions League winners and this season they’re well on their way to win the Premier League for the first time.

They have assembled a great offense, with players like Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino leading the way as a fearsome forward unit.

Nevertheless, Carragher feels the team needs to add more depth, with Sancho thought to be a great option for the English giants.

“I think Liverpool still lack one player which is an attacking player to really support the front three and almost make it like a front four,” the Reds legend told Viasport.

“At the moment there’s still a big difference when one of the front three doesn't play.

“We saw that at the weekend again when Salah was out – that time Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain played in the front three and that didn’t work. We’ve seen [Divock] Origi - that doesn’t work.

“Maybe there’s talk of a man in the Bundesliga coming to England from Borussia Dortmund, maybe he’s someone who Liverpool may be looking at in Sancho, who a lot of other Premier League clubs are looking at.

“There has been some great signings for Liverpool in the past [in January]. You think of [Virgil] van Dijk, Luis Suarez, Daniel Agger was a great player for Liverpool, Daniel Sturridge is another one.

“I would like to see an attacking player come in, someone with a bit more quality, maybe someone who could help them in the coming months going forward.

“I don’t think it’s an area which Klopp really looks at but I would expect it to be a really big summer for Liverpool, especially considering they didn’t sign anyone last summer.”

Sancho is currently one of the best offensive players in the world, which has prompted a host of Euro giants to set their sights on the youngster. Yet, he hasn’t been the only playmaker to be linked with Liverpool in recent times. For instance, Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Kai Havertz is another promising talent that the Reds are said to have their eye on.
