Liverpool look set to take their summer transfer spending to around £147.5m with two more new faces likely to be unveiled at Anfield next week after successful talks held over the start of the new Premier League season.

Brendan Rodgers has been busy in the transfer market so far, signing big names such as Adam Lallana, Rickie Lambert and Lazar Markovic, and these next two purchases will be among the most exciting of the lot, with £51m likely to go on bringing in Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani.

The Uruguayan international has struggled to find his best form in Ligue 1, having previously established himself as one of the best centre-forwards in the world at his previous club Napoli, and he has now been chosen by Rodgers as the ideal candidate to replace the recently-departed Luis Suarez.

The 27-year-old would be the club’s record signing by a long way, smashing the £35m spent on signing Andy Carroll from Newcastle United back in 2011, and fans will no doubt be excited to see him partnering Daniel Sturridge upfront.

Joining him on Merseyside could be former Arsenal midfielder Alex Song, who has been allowed to hold talks with the club after finding himself surplus to requirements at Barcelona, whom he only joined from the Gunners two years ago.

The Cameroon international has become something of a figure of ridicule at the Nou Camp for failing to break into the side on a regular basis, though he was previously regarded as a top Premier League player during his time at the Emirates Stadium.

With Lucas Leiva possibly set to move to Napoli, Song would be a useful addition in the defensive midfield role, with Rodgers looking for a suitable partner to play alongside club captain Steven Gerrard.

Song would cost around £8m, which could prove to be a bargain if he regains the best form he showed in an Arsenal shirt.

Cavani, however, would no doubt be the more exciting of the two signings, and would go down as one of the biggest transfer stories of the summer if Liverpool could pull it off.
