Liverpool to spend over £100million in transfers this summer

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has insisted the club will continue spending this summer, expecting to exceed the £100million mark, according to the Liverpool Echo.

The Reds have already spent £57million thus far, signing Emre Can, Lazar Markovic, and Southampton duo Adam Lallana and Rickie Lambert.

However with the club record £75million sale of Luis Suarez, Liverpool have been injected with transfer funds to further strengthen the squad.

Rodgers will be in the market for a striker to replace their departed star, with Loic Remy and Wilfried Bony emerging as targets.

“The signings we have made have no relation to Luis going, absolutely – these were players that were always earmarked to come in,” Rodgers confirmed.

“We felt last year we just never had the depth and we are in the Champions League this year so we have to ensure we have as strong a squad as possible.

“Obviously Luis going gives us the clout to go and spend more and we are getting the right type of player in.

Along with attackers, Rodgers is also interested in defenders Dejan Lovren and Swansea’s Ben Davies to shore up their shaky back line.
