Liverpool close in on £68m of transfer talent (1)

Published 1 Comments

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers looks set to continue significantly strengthening his first-team squad at Anfield ahead of the new campaign, and already has £68 million worth of talent lined up for a move to Merseyside this summer.

The Daily Telegraph reports how the Reds boss plans to follow up the £4 million acquisition of England striker Rickie Lambert and £10 million capture of Emre Can from Bayer Leverkusen with the addition of at least four new players before the close of the transfer window.

With over £60 million available to spend - and any extra money made from outgoing player sales - the Northern Irishman is determined to add more quality to his ranks in preparation for Liverpool's return to the Champions League in 2014/15.

Although there are question marks surrounding the long-term future of star striker Luis Suarez, Rodgers might look to use the Uruguayan's sorry situation to his advantage by demanding much-coveted Chilean Alexis Sanchez in any potential deal that would see Suarez move to Camp Nou.

The South American's departure from Anfield would obviously be a huge loss to the Premier League giants, but there are plans already in place to soften the blow with the arrival of several new players that each have earned rave reviews for their respective performances either at the World Cup or over the past 12 months.
