Liverpool will sign a complete midfielder in January.
After Harvey Elliott dislocated his shoulder at the Leeds United game on Saturday, he won’t be able to feature for the Reds anytime soon.
He enjoyed a breakout campaign this year starting three out of four games for the Merseyside club.
Gabby Agbonlahor believes Liverpool needs to sign a midfielder in January after Harvey Elliott’s injury.
Agbonlahor told Football Insider: “Harvey Elliott’s a great player but he’s 18-years-old. If he stayed fit, he was going to have inconsistencies, he’s not Wijnaldum with his legs getting up and down the pitch.
“Elliott was a good player and added competition to the starting XI. But when you’ve got games against big clubs like Man City, Chelsea and Man United you’re going to need a Wijnaldum-type player. Not signing one could come back to hurt them.
“Naby Keita’s not the man for the job. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, for me, is not the man. I think definitely they’ll be looking in January to bring in another midfielder, the next Wijnaldum, really.”
