Brendan Rodgers indicates up to six new signings this summer

Liverpool Manager Brendan Rodgers has announced that he is aware he must strength the team this summer and part of that strategy will be signing six new players.

Regardless of whether the team secures the Premiership title, which is looking  unlikely in light of Liverpool’s less than satisfactory goal difference against City, Rodgers will definitely work to improve the team for next season. He plans to do this by making strategic signings in order to put the team in the best position for the battle in the Champions League. He has indicated he is considering some big names to help him achieve this.

‘We will need to bring in players over the summer, and the great plus about being in the Champions League is that it makes it easier to attract the top ones, but we have developed a style of football over this past year that is already being recognised.

‘Last summer when we were speaking to certain players they said they respected what we were trying to achieve but they wanted to play at the top level,’ he said. ‘We are at that level now, ahead of schedule, so I suspect this summer will be a totally different proposition.

lfc-books ‘It is a World Cup summer, so most of the best players are going to be in Brazil for a while, but it is the same for everyone else and our recruitment team has already started work.

‘The owners recognise that we will need an injection of quality for next year and I know the profile of the players we will need.’

Strengthening the teams defence will be top of the list but it seems likely that a new striker will be required too, in order to ease the pressure on Suarez and Sturridge.

‘We are already putting plans in place so it will be the total opposite of my first season here,’ he added. ‘Then players didn’t report back until quite late after the Euros and I only had a short space of time to put across my ideas and methods.

‘I had no real time to work then so it was difficult to be at a new club. This summer, we have an established playing style and new players will be able to come in and immediately know what we are all about.’
