Brendan Rodgers is quite clearly chasing width to add to his Liverpool squad this summer. The Reds have been linked with a host of wingers in recent weeks and Rodgers will have funds available to add the necessary talent to his improving side.
Rodgers' side is currently exceeding expectations in the Premier League, as they sit second behind Chelsea. However, the Liverpool boss will want to add to his squad this summer and it appears as though he will be targeting a wide player to add to the attacking talents of Luis Suarez, Daniel Sturridge and Philippe Coutinho.
Despite that, the Reds will have their work cut out in trying to capture some of Europe's top talent. In the January transfer window, Liverpool missed out on Yevhen Konoplyanka and Mohamed Salah and they will have to act quickly to avoid a repeat of that disappointment.
One target that appears to be out of their grasp is Benfica's Nicolas Gaitan, who is reportedly on the verge of signing a new contract. However, another Benfica winger on Rodger's radar is Lazar Marković. Again it's reported that Liverpool will challenge Chelsea for the midfielder's signature.
It's also claimed that Liverpool have joined that race for Porto winger Juan Iturbe, who is on loan at Verona. It seems pretty clear that Rodgers is chasing a winger to add to the ranks at Anfield however it appears that he may, once again, be in for a battle with some of Europe's elite clubs.
It could be a long drawn out summer once again for Liverpool fans.
