Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers is planning a summer transfer spree of £135m, according to the Sunday People.

Rodgers is believed to be targeting six new arrivals as the club look to fill the void left by Luis Suarez, who joined Barcelona in a £75m deal.

Targets

The 41-year old is set to raid Southampton once again by trying to lure striker Jay Rodriguez to Anfield to join up with Rickie Lambert and Adam Lallana as well as centre-back Dejan Lovren, who wants away from St Mary's.

He is also keen on bringing Sevilla's Alberto Moreno and Swansea's Ben Davies and 'keeper Michel Vorm to the club, and a deal for Lazar Markovic could be completed this week.

Fans fears

The news may not exactly reassure those Liverpool fans who are worried the sale of Suarez has already ruled them out of challenging for next season's Premier League title.

Although Lallana and Emre Can - who have both already made the switch to Anfield - represent good deals, the lack of a world-class replacement for Suarez could see the Reds struggle to compete with the likes of Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United, who have all strengthened in this summer's transfer window.

Tottenham Hotspur were in a similar situation last season after Gareth Bale was sold to Real Madrid for a world-record fee but they didn't spend the money wisely, with the likes of Roberto Soldado and Erik Lamela not justifying their transfer fees.
