Jamie Carragher's warning outlined why Nunez is Liverpool's long-waited gem


Liverpool will finally have a perfect No9 in Darwin Nunez answering the issue Jamie Carragher wanted Jurgen Klopp to resolve

Liverpool are expected to officially announce the signing of Darwin Nunez soon.

The Benfica and Uruguayan striker has been the subject of a £68m plus add-ons transfer to Anfield - not necessarily a replacement for Sadio Mane who's being deemed to leave the club this summer.

Speaking to Sky Sports last February, Carragher moaned about "the lack of an orthodox striker" in  Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool side.

"You look at Bobby Firmino and Liverpool's attacking players, they don't actually have a striker, he said."

"Jota is not a striker, same with Mane, same with Salah. They have Divock Origi but he's nowhere near good enough. And he a lot of the time plays out wide, because he can't play as a centre-forward.

"So Firmino plays that role but we always talk about him being a ‘false nine’, he’s not actually an out-and-out striker. I think Liverpool could do with bringing a striker in, just to shake things up and primarily someone who gets goals. I think there's too much pressure on those two players at the top of the pitch to score goals. If they don't score, Liverpool don't look like scoring."
