Jamie Carragher is concerned that Liverpool’s only major signing this summer was Ibrahima Konate, he told the PA News Agency.

He highlighted the fact that the club did not bring in an attacking player of the caliber of the current front line, saying, “I’m disappointed Liverpool haven’t got an attacker in, I must say.

“I do think Liverpool are short in the attack and they will have to keep everybody fit, which is nigh on impossible really. I do think they will struggle but they’re very robust, Liverpool’s front three.

“Mane and maybe Salah away for the Africa Cup of Nations at some stage, I’m not sure how many games they’ll miss but I do think that was something to miss for Liverpool.”

Harking back to last season’s injury crisis at central defense, he is not convinced that the current players on the bench can fill in adequately for Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, and Bobby Firmino.

“They’ve got (Divock) Origi there and (Takumi) Minamino but I basically wanted someone who was better than them to come in to the club”, he said.

“You know whether it’s the owners, if it’s something to do with the pandemic, finances are tight and you know with no one going out we couldn’t bring anyone in.

“(Diogo) Jota is there as well and he was a big miss for Liverpool last season, he missed about four months with a knee injury.”
