REPORTS: Liverpool told to sign their own Erling Haaland or Man City will ‘leave them behind’

Liverpool will be left behind by Manchester City if they do not make a major signing of their own this summer, according to former Tottenham midfielder Jamie O’Hara. City have already agreed a deal to bring Erling Haaland to the Etihad from next season.

Pep Guardiola’s side need a victory on the final day of this campaign to secure their fourth Premier League title in five years. But Guardiola clearly feels he must continue to add to his hugely talented squad with the signing of Haaland.

O’Hara believes the arrival of Haaland can take City to another level. And therefore he thinks Liverpool must bring in a huge player themselves to prevent the gap from becoming unassailable.

O’Hara said on talkSPORT: “Well I think they’ve got to react to the fact that Manchester City have signed Haaland. That’s the kind of final piece to the jigsaw.

“Because otherwise I feel like they will end up getting left behind this Man City. They’ve spent £100million on Grealish and you’d say that hasn’t been the best signing that they could have made, but they’re going to win the Premier League.

“You bring in Haaland, now you’re talking. That is a big step up in quality for me and that is a hell of a signing. Liverpool I think need to react to that.”
