Liverpool would need to make signings this summer if they are to challenge ahead of next season, claims Stephen Warnock.

Former Liverpool defender Stephen Warnock says the Reds ‘need to make signings’ in the upcoming summer transfer window.

Liverpool have been badly affected by injuries to Virgil Van Dijk, Joe Gomez, and Jordan Henderson in the current campaign. The likes of Fabinho and Joel Matip have also spent time on the sidelines.

The loss of those players has ruled them out of the Premier League title race. They’ve also bowed out of Europe after being knocked out of the Champions League by Real Madrid.

Warnock takes a look at the summer window and believes Liverpool would try to be active in the transfer market.

Speaking to Sky Sports, he said: “They’ll try and add players to the ranks. We’re talking about a centre-half, which they’ve been openly looking at. Then a centre-forward would probably be in the mix as well.

“If Gini Wijnaldum is to leave the club then they’ll need a replacement in centre-midfield. That’s something they’ll look to build on.

“I don’t think there’s too much wrong [with the Liverpool squad] if I’m being honest.

“But if you look at the centre-half injuries this season, that would have impacted any team.”
