The Northern Irish manager took the reigns at Anfield this off-season after Kenny Dalglish’s sacking, and has promised to play enterprising and attacking football.
The only name of note to be added to the Merseysiders’ contingent is Italy international attacker Fabio Borini, but Rodgers has confessed that they are looking to sign more players.
“There’s a lot of great work going on, obviously with the board and Ian Ayre in particular doing a lot of work behind the scenes,” Rodgers admitted to the side’s official website.
“I’ve got regular contact going with our American owners and, in particular, Mike Gordon from Fenway Sports Group.
“Obviously when it’s a club like Liverpool prices are always increased and so on, but I always felt it was important by the beginning of the season we could have the squad we want – and certainly by the end of the transfer window I would hope that will be the case.
“There is lots of speculation. I’ve seen hundreds of names linked with Liverpool and there’s very few of them that were even close to coming here or even close that we have looked at.
“Unfortunately for the supporters they’ve got to read it and put up with it. But the message is there is a lot of work going on, on a number of deals and hopefully we can get those completed by the end of August,” he concluded.
