Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp should bring in two strikers who are capable of scoring regularly, according to Reds legend Graeme Souness. The German coach took charge at Anfield after the club decided to relieve Brendan Rodgers of his duties last October.
The Merseyside club sold Luis Suarez to Barcelona in 2014, while Daniel Sturridge has struggled with injuries since then. Last summer, Rodgers signed Christian Benteke from Aston Villa and the Belgium international has struggled since Klopp was appointed as Liverpool's manager.
Benteke and Sturridge have failed to form a formidable pair as they collectively scored nine league goals. When the England international was playing alongside with Suarez, they collectively scored over 50 league goals in the 2013/14 season and Souness wants Liverpool to find two strikers who can emulate what Sturridge and Suarez did at Anfield.
"Liverpool must find two strikers capable of playing and scoring regularly. Sturridge and Luis Suarez took them within a whisker of the title two years ago, scoring 52 league goals between them, and that breeds confidence," Souness told The Sunday Times.
"I said at the start of the campaign that Liverpool needed Christian Benteke to have a big season and score regularly as they couldn't rely on Daniel Sturridge's fitness.
"That hasn't happened. Benteke has scored six Premier League goals and fallen out of favour, while Sturridge has only played in four league games. He has undoubted quality, but you can't be sure he will be in your team."
Liverpool chief executive Ian Ayre confirmed the club will back Klopp in the summer transfer window after announcing record profits. However, Souness has warned the Anfield faithful that the former Borussia Dortmund manager needs two summer transfer windows to get his own players.
"Liverpool have said they will give Jurgen Klopp more money to spend this summer than they gave any of his predecessors. He's going to need it because there's not a single area of his team or squad he will be satisfied with," he added.
"Klopp won't get everything right first time either. He will need at least two summer windows and perhaps snatching a quality signing in the winter one between them to complete the overhaul required."
