Liverpool: Fans don’t want Maddison at Anfield, despite Carragher’s comments

Former Liverpool player Jamie Carragher has said that the club should try to sign Leicester midfielder James Maddison when the Premier League transfer window reopens.

The Liverpool Echo quoted Carragher’s comments on Sky Sports, which were also relayed by Liverpool-focused Twitter channel @AnfieldWatch.

Carragher told Sky Sports [via Liverpool Echo]: “I think he is the one player outside of the top six who Liverpool should be looking at.

“People have been talking about [Philippe] Coutinho coming back, but obviously that hasn’t happened as he has gone to Bayern Munich, but if you are looking in the Premier League, yes he will cost a lot of money, but he should be the one Liverpool are looking at if you are going to that next step up.”

Maddison joined Leicester a year ago from Norwich in a deal worth around £20m, according to BBC, and ended his first season at the King Power Stadium with seven goals and seven assists from 38 appearances in total.

His corner led to the Foxes’ equaliser against Chelsea on Sunday, with Wilfred Ndidi’s header earning a point in a 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge. [via Sky Sports]

However, these Liverpool fans on Twitter didn’t share Carragher’s view that the 22-year-old midfielder should be a transfer target for the Reds, with one supporter even referring to him as a “glorified [Harry] Wilson”:
