Former Liverpool defender Steve Nicol thinks Jurgen Klopp should buy Leicester City midfielder James Maddison as he would improve their starting XI.
The Reds are unlikely to make any major additions this summer but could bring in replacements for Daniel Sturridge and Alberto Moreno, who left on free transfers.
Despite that, Nicol – who played well over 300 times for Liverpool – thinks Klopp should be looking to bring in Maddison after the England international contributed seven goals and seven assists for the Foxes last term.
“Maybe a starter, for me [he would be] a starter, James Maddison,” Nicol told ESPN.
“He’s a player who does, in my opinion, all the things that Klopp wants his middle three to do right now.
“You put him in the middle. I’d suggest because Jordan Henderson’s the captain right now it’d have to be ahead of Gini Wijnaldum.
“I think Wijnaldum starts right now because he has a goal or two in him but for me, Maddison would take over that because he has a goal or two in him [as well].
“He’s a guy that gets around, does the hard work, can get from box to box and has an eye for a pass.
“You’ve got a player coming in [in Maddison] who makes the starting eleven better already.”
Maddison was linked by The Sun last month with a £60million move to Manchester United.
