Popular football pundit Jamie Carragher has suggested on Sky Sports that he would sign Erling Haaland instead of Kylian Mbappe for Liverpool.
On Monday Night Football, Carragher was asked whom he would sign for Liverpool if he were the Reds owner. The Sky Sports pundit said he would sign Haaland for the Reds.
🗣 “There’s something about Haaland he looks mad” 😅

Crystal Palace winger Andros Townsend has also suggested to Stadium Astro that Liverpool need a striker like Haaland.
Townsend suggested that Liverpool do have two quality forwards in Roberto Firmino and Diogo Jota, but they need a quality striker to take the club forward after a disappointing campaign.
Haaland is one of the most sought-after players in the world at the moment, with several top clubs in Europe vying for his signature.
The 20-year-old, who dazzled for Borussia Dortmund last season, has managed 23 goals for the German club in all competitions this season.
He has been prolific in the Champions League this season, producing a top-class performance against Sevilla.
Liverpool are likely to rebuild their squad next summer and it will be interesting to see if they sell any one of their front three to raise funds for Haaland who won’t be available on the cheap.
Klopp can use his contact at Dortmund to prise Haaland away, but it will become tough for Liverpool to convince him to join if they miss out on Champions League spot next season.
