So far this transfer window Liverpool have been very busy signing no more than six players at a cost of a sizeable of £87 million.

It is understandable that Brendan Rodgers would want to get some business done early in the transfer window, but his dealings will continue into the final weeks as he strives to replace Luis Suarez.

But what of the signings the Liverpool manager has already made?

Defence - Dejan Lovren

Despite in my view paying slightly too much for him, Dejan Lovren will bring some well-needed cover to the Liverpool defence.

Having played in the Champions League with former club Lyon, he will provide a good alternative to the likes of Kolo Toure and Martin Skrtel for Rodgers when rotating the squad for Premier League and European games.

Midfield – Adam Lallana, Emre Can, Lazar Markovic

Liverpool have invested heavily in their midfield so far, with Lallana, Can and Markovic being bought in.

Lallana has unfortunately picked up an injury that will rule him out for the start of the season.

However both Can and Markovic have impressed during pre-season, both having a good game against Olympiacos.

Markovic played especially well causing all sorts of problems for the Olympiacos defence, going past defenders and creating chances.

All three of these midfield signings are looking to be good captures for Liverpool, especially Can who they recruited for only £8 million.

Only one out of new signing Can and last season's star Jordan Henderson will be able to partner Steven Gerrard in the Reds midfield. With both of them impressing so far, it’s not a bad selection headache for Rodgers to have.

Attack – Rickie Lambert

With Loic Remy’s move to Anfield off after he failed the medical, Rickie Lambert remains the only senior striker Liverpool have bought this transfer window so far.

Divock Origi has also arrived, but he is very much one for the future with the Belgian teenager having been loaned straight back to Lille.

Lambert will prove useful as he gives Rodgers someone to rotate with Daniel Sturridge, and a more direct option to what has already been at the club's disposal.

With new signing Markovic being able to play on the wing as well as Raheem Sterling playing out wide, the Reds have some exciting attacking options for next season already, although another forward will surely be needed.
