Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has revealed plans to strengthen his squad during the summer transfer window as the Reds look to become a mainstay in the Champions League once again.

Rodgers' side are currently five-points behind rivals Everton, who are sixth in the table, and are an almighty 30 points behind Premier League leaders Manchester United.

Liverpool have forked out £50m on the likes of Daniel Sturridge, Joe Allen and Philippe Coutinho since Rodgers' arrival from Swansea City last June, but the Northern Irishman believes more acquisitions are needed to take the Reds to the next level.

Rodgers, speaking to talkSPORT, said: "We will be in a much better place at the start of next season. Everyone can see we have improved and got better.

"We have got some top players but you need quality throughout the team and once we bring in that quality we will move up to the next level."

The Liverpool manager will be hoping top scorer Luis Suarez commits his future to the side despite being continuously linked with moves to European giants Bayern Munich and Juventus.

Rodgers will also have to replace outgoing defender Jamie Carragher, who announced he is to retire from football at the end of the season after a 26-year affiliation with the Anfield club.

"We’ll look at it in the summer, every club will bring in more players and we will aim to bring in that quality that will improve the group," concluded Rodgers
