Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has revealed that the club are looking to add yet more players to their squad despite their arrivals count for this window standing at a whopping six.
The Reds have spent close to £90m this summer to snap up a host of talented players, with the sale of Luis Suarez offsetting £75m of the splurge.
Southampton trio Adam Lallana, Dejan Lovren and Rickie Lambert have been joined at Anfield by Lazar Markovic, Emre Can and Divock Origi – the latter will return to Lille on loan – in a hectic few weeks on Merseyside.
Spanish defenders Alberto Moreno and Javier Manquillo are expected to become Liverpool players in the coming weeks, but beyond them even more names are being linked with the club.
Although Rodgers admitted that he’s happy with both his concluded and imminent business, the Northern Irishman says that he has more areas of his squad he wants to strengthen:
“It’s just purely on the back of us having a really thin squad last season where we were very, very short.” He is quoted by Goal.
“The players did remarkably well and it was incredible what they achieved but they need help this year – they need assistance.
“We’ve got the belief this year we can go on and do well in all of the competitions. Especially after the Christmas period on the back end of a World Cup year, we need to make sure we have freshness in every game we play because of the nature of our game.
“There are still one or two areas to look at. There’s no point mentioning numbers or positions – we want a couple of positions strengthened and if we can do that, I’ll be really, really happy.”
