Reds boss wants to see more new faces at Anfield next campaign.
Liverpool head coach Brendan Rodgers has insisted that he will have the final decision on any new signings that the Merseyside giants make at the end of the season, reports the Daily Telegraph.
The Northern Irishman has only been in the job for under a year now after replacing previous Reds manager Kenny Dalglish last summer.
However, Rodgers’s first foray into the transfer market prior to this season was not a resounding success, with the club only managing to bring the likes of Fabio Borini and Joe Allen to Anfield, while at the same time sufferingmuch-publicised failures to land Fulham attacker Clint Dempsey and Swansea City midfield player Gylfi Sigurdsson, who both opted to join Tottenham Hotspur instead.
The 40-year-old did enjoy more success though in the recent January transfer window, luring both striker Daniel Sturridge from Chelsea and midfield player Philippe Coutinho from Inter Milan.
And the Reds boss is adamant that it will be him and no one else at the club who has the final say on any new arrivals this summer.
“There is absolutely no way a player will come in here if I don’t want him,” Rodgers said.
“I will always be the first person it comes to. That’s not being arrogant, that’s how we operate here and how it works in this country.
“Abroad it works differently where you have a coach and the club will bring in the players. The coach then works with the players he’s given.
“A lot has been made of it but the fact is the process that happens here is no different to what happens at other English clubs.
“We have a number of people, scouting staff and analysts, who will look for targets who fit the profile of the players that we want.
“Then I will sit down with those guys, look at those targets and make a shortlist from that.
“All that work that goes on is of great help to me. We identify players, gather all the information we possibly can and then if they’re right for what we need it comes down to whether they are affordable and available.
“I know the club will go and do the best it can to get the players we want. But it’s very clear that anyone we sign will be because I want him here.”
