Carragher pinpoints what Liverpool must do in the transfer market this summer

Jamie Carragher has urged Liverpool to "spend big" in the transfer market this summer if they want to keep ahead of their Premier League rivals.

The former Reds defender highlighted two key positions in particular that Jurgen Klopp should strengthen to help keep his side on top.

Liverpool have not invested a great deal in the playing squad over the last two windows, with Takumi Minamino the only significant arrival.

The Anfield club have been linked with a move for Red Bull Leipzig striker Timo Werner, and Carragher feels that is one area Klopp should be targeting.

He told Sky Sports' The Football Show: "If you look at the XI, I think it's very difficult to improve that.

"I actually felt Liverpool did need reinforcements [in the last two transfer windows]. I just feel this team has been together now for 3 or 4 years. The front six hasn't changed for about 2 or 3 years. That doesn't mean it should change but I just think there should be something more certainly in reserve for the front three.

"I think Liverpool have been lucky that the best players have never really suffered injury-wise. When you think of the big players, the front three, the two full-backs and Virgil van Dijk.

"I just think can there be more competition, certainly with [Andy] Robertson at left-back. He's the only recognised left-back at the club.

"I think Liverpool need more than Divock Origi to back-up one of the front three when they're out. Hence why Liverpool have been linked with Timo Werner. I actually think Liverpool do need to invest to keep them where they are."

Werner has a reported release clause of £52million, with Chelsea among the clubs challenging Liverpool for his signature.

But the 23-year-old has expressed his concerns over playing time if he moved to Liverpool.
