Former Aston Villa captain Gabriel Agbonlahor has told Liverpool they need to sign Borussia Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham to bolster their midfield.
Agbonlahor has also issued a damning verdict on Liverpool midfielder Thiago Alcantara, insisting the 31-year-old appears to belong in the Masters Football tournament – a competition for retired footballers.
The former England international told Football Insider: “100%. I’m watching Thiago against Brentford, he looks like he belongs in Masters Futbol. He’s been getting around. Being good on the ball isn’t enough – you’ll get run over in this league. Henderson can still do He does that on occasions, but he has been poor in recent matches.”
He added: “Fabinho can’t really run. Keita, Chamberlain, Elliott – they’re good players, but just look at some of the other teams.
“They need [Jude] Bellingham. They need two outstanding midfielders who can extend the game and play from box to box. Carragher is where he is – they need to spend £200m on that midfield now.”
