Why Liverpool 'need' Frankie de Jong as their midfielder

Liverpool is being urged to make a move for Barcelona midfielder Frankie de Jong, with a former Liverpool defender claiming that he would be perfect for the club.

De Jong was heavily linked with Manchester United before his move to Barcelona, but it seems Liverpool could now be in the frame for the Dutch international.

Speaking to reporters, former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher believes that de Jong would help to solidify the midfield for Liverpool. Carragher has stated that de Jong’s abilities on the ball and his tactical awareness would add a much-needed extra dimension to the Liverpool midfield.

With Liverpool having struggled in the midfield during the past season, it is clear that additional reinforcements are needed in that department. It is thought that de Jong could be the perfect addition to the team, offering a creative spark and a level of control and stability that has been lacking in recent months.
