Brendan Rodgers wants to bring Premier League quartet to Liverpool

Published 1 Comments

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has given the club the green light to sign the Premier League quartet of James Milner, Danny Ings, Nathaniel Clyne and Christian Benteke. 

This has been reported by The Telegraph, who claim that the Reds boss, who still faces an uncertain future at the club, has agreed with the hierarchy that he wants the players to move to the club this summer. 

Liverpool, of course, endured a torrid 2014/15 campaign, as the Reds finished the Premier League season in sixth place.

It's far from certain, after the club were demolished 6-1 against Stoke City on the final day of the season, as to whether Rodgers will still be in charge next term, but it appears that he is involved in the club's plans for the transfer window. 

Closing in 

In fact, the same report goes on to reveal that the club are closing in on a deal to sign Manchester City man James Milner, who is set to run out of contract at the Etihad at the end of the month.

It also states that the club made a £10m bid for Saints right-back Nathaniel Clyne, while it remains to be seen as to whether they step up their interest in the duo of Benteke and Ings anytime soon.

It's certainly not surprising that the club are looking to improve in the attacking department after a disappointing campaign in front of goal.

Rickie Lambert and Mario Balotelli, who arrived at the club last summer, failed to prove their credentials on Merseyside, as they struggled for playing time and form. Daniel Sturridge, who was excellent in 2013/14 had a season to forget, as injury problems slowed down his progression at the club. 

Must get it right

Benteke and Ings, then, would no doubt improve the Reds, who must get things right in this transfer window. At the end of the day, last summer wasn't good enough, as they failed to improve the squad after the departure of talisman Luis Suarez. 

There's no doubt about it, the mentioned quartet would act as solid signings for the club in their attempts to move forward, but fans will no doubt be hoping for marquee signings at the club. 

In truth, though, without Champions League football at Anfield, it may well prove tricky for the Reds to land top-names, but they can't afford to make mistakes.
