Kenny Dalglish has revealed Liverpool have the funds to delve into the transfer market once more this summer.

Liverpool have spent big since Dalglish took over the club last January, and splashed over £100 million on the likes of Andy Carroll and Jordan Henderson in 2011.

However despite that heavy investment the Reds have failed to make an impact on the Premier League table and currently occupy eighth spot, although they have secured a place in the FA Cup final to go along with their Carling Cup success in February.

“We will have money to spend, whoever it’s on,” Dalglish told the Daily Mirror.

“Whether it’s the FA Cup money, Raul [Meireles] being sold to Chelsea [last summer] or from commercial sources, it doesn’t matter where it comes from.

“It all goes into the coffers. The money which is there for us to spend ... we will get whatever they can give us,” he added.

The Liverpool boss also confirmed that, despite the departure of director of football, Damien Comolli who dealt with the club’s transfers, that they hadn’t been twiddling their thumbs ahead of what could be another busy summer.

“We’re not idle,” Dalglish said. “The owners haven’t decided how they are going to replace Damien, but that doesn’t mean the work has stopped.

“Anything we have got to do, we will continue to do the best we can until the owners make the decision on how they want Damien replaced.

“Then whoever comes in will just take up the conversations we have had. We know where we are going.

“We’re not happy with the number of points we have, but the performances have been really pleasing”

He added: “There are not a lot of changes needed but, like every other football club in the summer, there’s going to be transfer activity because that’s what players expect.

“They look at the football club and say ‘who are they going to bring in this summer?’ They want to be excited as much as the supporters want to be excited.

“We’ve only been at it since August. Although nobody is happy with the results we have had at home, I don’t think it’s been a bad turnaround.”
