The Liverpool tenure has been no easy task for Brendan Rodgers. Although the Reds have only managed to improve upon last season’s final standing by one place in the Premier League, the Northern Irishman’s inaugural season has been dogged with off-pitch complications and financial restrictions.
The papers have rumoured he will only have a small transfer kitty at his disposal in the summer, but nevertheless, the Anfield faithful will be expecting a handful of new recruits to raise the quality or add to the depth of the first team in time for their next campaign.
With every transfer, the planning behind the scenes, involving scouts, managers, chairmen, accountants and agents, has been going on a long time, and it will be no different with Liverpool’s future summer purchases.
Therefore, to keep you in the loop, we’ve created a shortlist of five potential signings already on Rodgers’ radar.
