Gabriel Agbonlahor has claimed that Liverpool need to focus on bringing in new midfielders in the summer in order to properly challenge Manchester City next term.
The former Aston Villa hitman cited Thiago Alcantara’s injury struggles and the general ageing of the club’s first-choice midfield trio as evidence of the need for proper investment into the middle of the park.
The Merseysiders were thought to be seriously interested in Aurelien Tchouameni prior to Real Madrid sealing the signature of the highly-rated Frenchman.
