Anfield manager keen to make quality additions to Liverpool squad.
Check in to Southampton FC vs Liverpool
Liverpool are to see a number of new arrivals in the summer according to The Daily Telegraph.
Anfield boss Brendan Rodgers is keen to bring in ‘three or four’ new players as he looks to continue his project to rebuild the Liverpool side.
‘There is no doubt that there is a natural rebuilding that will come with the likes of Jamie Carragher retiring. I am happy with the squad if I can then put another three or four quality players to it’, said Rodgers.
‘It is quality we are after not quantity. We see Coutinho and Sturridge’s arrival in January, if we bring in three or four players of that quality and add that to what we have got then we have got a strong squad.
‘You want between 20 and 22 players. I’m talking about two in every position and your three goalkeepers. Then below that having young players who can support that.’
Rodgers may however find himself restricted by his transfer budget. Unless Liverpool can somehow manage to finish in the Champions League qualification spots, the Reds’ boss is likely to have a kitty of just £20 million.
That could change should the club decide to cash in on Luis Suarez, with Bayern Munich amongst a host of clubs preparing a bid thought to be in the region of £50 million.
