Reds boss targets a few quality new arrivals.
Liverpool head coach Brendan Rodgers says that he wants to bring in three or four new players for next season to help continue his rebuilding project on Merseyside, reports the Daily Telegraph.
The Northern Irishman only took over from previous manager Kenny Dalglish in the Anfield dug out last summer, but due to a combination of time constraints and financial restrictions was unable to bring in both the quality and quantity of new faces to the club that he wanted for the start of this season.
As a result, the Reds endured a slow and disappointing start to this campaign, which has ultimately cost the club in the race to finish in the top four of the Premier League and with it entry into the Champions League.
And so Rodgers wants to avoid making the same mistakes again in the transfer window this summer, instead focussing on the quality of new arrivals rather than the quantity.
“There is no doubt there is a natural rebuilding that will come with the likes of Jamie Carragher retiring. I am happy with the squad if I can then put another three or four quality players to it,” said Rodgers.
“It is quality we are after, not quantity. We see Coutinho and Sturridge’s quality in January… If we bring in another three or four players of that quality and add that to what we have got then we have got a strong squad.”
Liverpool’s squad is gradually beginning to gel. Should they sign just a few decent players, they could really begin to challenge at the highest level again.
