Liverpool's managing director Ian Ayre has revealed Brendan Rodgers will be given a significant transfer budget to sign top quality players this summer, according to BBC Sport.
After a great season, regardless of whether they win the league or not, Liverpool have cemented their place in next year's Champions League. However, with a small squad who've benefited from not playing in many European and cup matches, the onus is on Rodgers to reinforce his side with squad players as well as stellar names in the summer.
"It will cost what it costs when we decide who the manager wants to buy," said managing director, Ian Ayre.
Thanks to Liverpool's return to the Europe, Ayre is confident his club can attract the biggest names in football to ply their trade at Anfield, and it's no surprise that the Reds are being linked with the top names in the sport.
"It has always been tougher in the transfer market when you are not competing at the highest level," said Ayre.
"We have always been fortunate to be able to bring great players here despite that, but there is no question it opens up a few doors for us and makes it a little bit easier.
"There is no question we always expected that the squad we need for next season will be very different to the squad that we have needed for this year when we were not playing in Europe."
With defensive reinforcements expected at Anfield, Rodgers will look to start his transfer shopping as soon as possible, and the likes of Yevhen Konoplyanka may complete moves fairly soon.
