Legend announces he will be delighted to see £140M duo make Liverpool moves
Jamie Carragher says he would be ‘delighted’ if Liverpool signed Mason Mount and Alexis Sanchez in the summer window.
Liverpool have had a terrible season this year and will need to delve into that transfer kitty in order to revamp the side and get back into the Champions League – and challenge for that Premier League title.
Various names have been linked with Anfield, most prominently Mount and Mac Allister who are expected to leave their respective clubs in the next transfer window.
Now – amid all the speculation – Carragher has opened up and revealed that he would love to see both players arrive in the coming transfer window.
‘Mason Mount is a funny one, in that people always seem a little bit down on him for whatever reason. I’ve never got it, I’m a huge fan,’ Liverpool legend Carragher told The Anfield Wrap.
‘He’s a Champions League winner. I really like him. He’s got energy to press, he’d provide a greater goal threat from midfield than we have from Jordan [Henderson] in that position right now.
‘Every top manager who’s been at Chelsea has picked him. He plays for England and I think the club have also got to be thinking about that homegrown situation.’
He added: ‘If we brought Mac Allister and Mason Mount in, I’d be delighted with that.
‘I definitely want us to bring a defensive midfield player in as well, because Mount and Mac Allister are more offensive midfield players.
‘I don’t think our problem is going forward, our problem is defensively.
If we’re gonna get back to where we wanna be, which is challenging Manchester City and challenging for big trophies, we’ve got to sort ourselves out defensively because that’s been the biggest problem this season.’
We believe that Liverpool fans would agree?
