Liverpool chief set to offer Rodgers transfer war-chest

Liverpool FC: Shankly GatesLiverpool boss Brendan Rodgers says he will have significant funds to improve the Reds squad during the summer.

The Northern Irishman has already spent £40million on enhancing his options at Anfield since making the switch from Swansea last summer and has drawn up a list of potential new arrivals ahead of the transfer window re-opening.

Rodgers sat down with principal owner John Henry and chairman Tom Werner this week to discuss plans for the future, telling the duo he needed more cash if Liverpool are to qualify for the Champions League next season.

The Reds are likely to fund their transfer war chest with the sales of Andy Carroll and Pepe Reina, and Rodgers says he will use the money to improve the quality of the squad.

When asked if he would be getting significant funds to bring in the players he wanted, Rodgers replied: “I believe so, in the areas that we want to improve, and that is going to be very important for us.

“The players have given everything this season. We are where we are and for us to improve we need quality – and that will take investment.”

Liverpool have recently been linked with moves for Jackson Martinez, Christian Eriksen, Ashley Williams and Michael Vorm, although the latter played down talk of a switch to Anfield on Friday.
