Anfield boss looks to make the most of limited transfer budget.
Brendan Rodgers has set his sights on four potential summer captures as the Liverpool boss looks to shake-up his Anfield squad according to the Daily Mirror.
Last summer Liverpool spent vast sums on new additions, chiefly funded by the sale of Luis Suarez to Barcelona, but this time around Rodgers will apparently be handed just £30m to invest in new additions.
That said it appears Rodgers is looking to bring in a few bargains to help make the most of what he has available starting with a free transfer move for Man City utility man James Milner.
The experienced England man is out of contract at the end of the current campaign and can offer Liverpool options in various roles.
Indeed he can help make up for the departure of Steven Gerrard, offering an option in the centre of the midfield as well as various roles out wide.
Rodgers will also look to sign Brazilian keeper Neto with the Fiorentina man perhaps a better fit as competition to Simon Mignolet than average Aussie Brad Jones.
Liverpool also have their eyes on another out of contract Premier League star with Burnley’s Danny Ings another target, though the 22 year old will require a compensatory fee as he’s unable to depart the Turf Moor side on a Bosman.
Ings has more than proven himself capable of making an impact in the English top tier and should offer Liverpool more strength in depth up front with Rodgers having seen both Rickie Lambert and Mario Balotelli fail to make an impact in their debut seasons on Merseyside.
The final target of this quartet comes in the form of Sporting Lisbon’s William Carvalho, a player who may well cost the lion’s share of the £30m budget, the Portuguese international being a player with a bright future.
The tough tackler is more than just an ‘enforcer’ and could provide Rodgers with real quality in the middle of the park.
