Having seen his side throw away a three goal lead at Crystal Palace, and put in a fair few other sketchy defensive displays this term, Rodgers is understandably keen to sign players who can better protect his back-line.

Rodgers continues to track long term Liverpool target Kyriakos Papadopoulos, though the Schalke centre-back’s long running injury problems which have restricted the Greek international to just two Bundesliga starts in the last two seasons, and is also keen on reuniting with Cardiff City captain Steven Caulker, whom he signed on loan while manager at Swansea.
