Urgent Transfer: Carra insists Klopp must dump 'adequate' €17m Liverpool star and sign an 'out-and-out' LB. Agree?

Reds legend Jamie Carragher has urged Jurgen Klopp to bring in a replacement for one of Liverpool's most consistent players.

Speaking to the Liverpool Echo on Tuesday, Carra explained:

“He [Klopp] has to look at the defensive side of things. The left-back area - James Milner has done really well, but he's not an out-and-out left-back, so you'd look there".

Carra isn't the only ex-player who feels this way:

* Jamie Redknapp [Dec 2016]: "James Milner has done well this season but if Liverpool are to sustain a challenge, they need another left back in January".

* John Barnes [Nov 2016]: "Liverpool need to go and get a left-back. James Milner has done well, but to win [the Prem], we need to get a left-back."

* Paul Parker [Nov 2016]: "Liverpool's downfall is in defence, with left-back the main problem".

* Steve Nicol [Oct 2016]: “Milner has been adequate, but eventually, he’s going to get found out”.

Calling Milner 'adequate' at left-back is a little unfair as, for the most part, he's been incredibly solid in the role. That said, Moreno aside, Liverpool have no other credible options in the position.

As such, a reinforcements in that area is obviously a priority, and the obvious benefit of signing a new first-choice left-back is that it frees Milner up to provide cover on the wings/central midfield.

Bev is having her bone marrow transplant today (Wed19th April). It's a big operation, and she'll be on life support for the duration. The recovery process is going to be very tough and unfortunately carries a great deal of risk with regards to infection, which could be life threatening due to the process requiring her immune system to have been purposefully wiped out beforehand (so that it doesn't f!ght against/reject the transplant). Sadly, the preparation treatment has adversely affected her heart as well and currently it is beating much lower than it should be so we have to hope that soon starts to recover as well. More HERE.
