need to strengthen their squad and bring in new players after humiliation against

– naming

Harry Kane

as a potential target.

The Reds have all-but ended their hopes of retaining the Premier League title after losing 4-1 to Manchester City at Anfield on Sunday.

Two former Liverpool stars believe the Reds will need some key additions in the summer transfer window to boost a first XI which has remained largely unchanged since the 2018 Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid in Kyiv.

"I still think they will be back but they need three players. They need a center-back, maybe he’s joined now in Ozan Kabak, they need someone to replace Wijnaldum, and they need someone in the front three.”

one-time Reds captain Carragher told Sky Sports

.

"I’m talking about players to come into the team like Matip, Wijnaldum, and Mane did, like Salah, Van Dijk, and Alisson. That’s what Liverpool need."

Meanwhile, ex-Liverpool striker Collymore said in The Mirror: "They do need to wake up and smell the coffee, which means owners FSG spending money to go toe-to-toe with City

"It means that if City go out and buy Erling Haaland this summer then Liverpool must buy the next Robert Lewandowski or even put in a bid for Harry Kane.

"What they can’t do is just say, ‘We have a really good XI, some youngsters coming through, and we can maintain our challenges that way’, because there are too many other teams with the money to make sure that won’t be the case."
