Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has revealed that he has been given plenty of money to spend on new signings this summer, but warned that he will only pursue players of a high quality.
The Reds have already spent over £23million on new players this season, with Iago Aspas, Kolo Toure, Simon Mignolet and Luis Alberto being brought in, but more finances could be available to the Northern Irish boss should Uruguayan striker Luis Suarez be sold before the end of the transfer window.
But more players will only be acquired if they are good enough to help the Anfield club push on from a seventh place finish last season, and Rodgers will use the money wisely.
He said to LFC TV: “They have to be of the right quality, that’s the bottom line.
“We’ve got money to spend on getting that quality in, but if it’s not available I won’t waste it for the sake of bringing a player in.
“We’re really working hard to bring in the type of profile that can really help us push on. We just need to see if that’s available and affordable.”
The sales of Andy Carroll to West Ham United and Jonjo Shelvey to Swansea City for £15.5million and and £5million respectively have given the Merseyside club more freedom in the transfer market, and they are reportedly interested in buying Schalke defender Kyriakos Papadopoulos as a long term replacement for the recently retired Jamie Carragher.
