Liverpool should sign another striker claims Danny Murphy

Future Liverpool signing Danny Ings scored more goals for a relegated side than Rickie Lambert, Mario Balotelli, Fabio Borini and Daniel Sturridge combined last season. 

The England under-21 international will join the Merseyside club on July 1st, while Divock Origi will also arrive at Anfield following his season-long loan at former club side Lille.

Daniel Sturridge, on the other hand, is struggling to shake off a persistent injury problem which has hampered his season and potentially won't be out on the pitch again until September at the earliest.

Murphy told talkSPORT: "Danny Ings is talented and he can score goals. It's tough to judge him on this season because he's been playing for Burnley. He's a talent, but he is unproven at the top level."

Murphy has also claimed that it is a necessity Brendan Rodgers dips back into the transfer market this summer despite Ings and Origi arriving.

Insisting that Liverpool can't rely on Sturridge, Murphy continued by saying: "He’s a great prospect and he’s English, so that’s good news for Liverpool. At this stage though, to get back into the top four, do they need a proven out and out striker? A bigger, more established, name? Or are they going to rely on Daniel Sturridge being fit? Because I’m not sure they can.”

Can Liverpool break into the top four with the strikers at their disposal, will the heavy reliance of, when he's fit, Sturridge be lifted? Or do they need to further increase their ever-growing forward line?
