says that the Reds don’t need a striker as they already have high-quality players at his position.

He told



"Liverpool don’t need to buy a striker this summer. They have players who will score plenty of goals already.

"Everyone wants Harry Kane, if he is available and teams need a player like him, but this isn’t someone that Liverpool need so he won’t necessarily be on their radar."

Signing the England international will be an expensive move for any club considering his very impressive form in the recent seasons and his consistency in performance, but John Barnes still insists that the Reds shouldn’t be looking to sign a striker while they have players like Mane and Diogo Jota and Origi who can play in the striker position.

The ex-England international added:

"Liverpool have got Diogo Jota, who can play up front, as well as Sadio Mane.

"They will only need to sign a new striker if they lose the current striking options they already have.

"Don’t forget Divock Origi is still there too, so they have plenty of striker solutions able to play at the club.

"Liverpool have signed a center-back and depending on whether Xherdan Shaqiri or Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain go, potentially another midfield player. 

"A striker is not top of their wanted list for the summer window."
