Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher believes that his former club are 'looking at' Ben Chilwell from Leicester City.
Chilwell, 19, failed to make a Premier League appearance for the Foxes last term, but he's widely recognised as one of the leading young full-backs in the country.
And Carragher believes that Chilwell could act as competition to Alberto Moreno in the left-back role next season.

Carragher stated, as per the Liverpool Echo: “I think they (Liverpool) are looking at a young lad from Leicester – Ben Chilwell – he is someone who could come in and challenge (Alberto) Moreno (at left-back), but it is certainly a position Liverpool need to fill."
As well as recruiting a left-back, Carragher hopes his former side sign another midfielder before the close of the transfer window.

Carragher speaks out
Reds boss Jurgen Klopp has already purchased midfielder Marko Grujic, but there's every chance that he will look to strengthen further.
The club's former defender also stated: “I am still hoping they (Liverpool) will bring a couple of players in, maybe at left-back, maybe one in midfield."
Carragher also claims that Liverpool will benefit without the prospect of playing in Europe next term and believes they can secure a top-four finish in the PremierLeague.
He continued: “But I think the fact that Liverpool haven’t got European football this season will be a massive help to Jurgen Klopp and the players and it gives them a great chance of getting into the top four.
“With Jurgen Klopp, you can see the way he wants his teams to play, the way they train, training is a big part of that and getting the sort of stamina levels and fitness levels, ready to go and play at a weekend.
“That was the problem for them last season, they couldn’t train properly because they had so many games. You are either recovering or building up to a game so you can’t put the training in that you want."
One or two additions are clearly still required on Merseyside, but there's no reason why Klopp won't be able to take his side forward next term.
