Rodgers confirmed that the lack of European football has tied his hands somewhat but is hoping to make at least two more signings this summer.
The former Swansea boss has had most of his attention taken up by Luis Suarez who cant make his mind up whether he wants to stay at Anfield or leave for Champions League football.
The Reds will not want to make many changes to the squad before the Suarez dilemma is sorted as the Uruguayan is a key member of the side.
“Nothing is close but plenty of work is going on,” Rodgers told the Liverpool Echo.
“How near or far we are, I will find out in Melbourne.
“There is daily dialogue going on but I am confident that we will get the one or two players who will really excite and complete the jigsaw.
“It was great to make the four signings so early on but we have still got some more work to do to strengthen the team.
“If you are not in the Champions League, that naturally makes it tougher.”
