Jamie Redknapp has warned Liverpool that they face a massive rebuilding job in the summer transfer window.

Long-serving captain Steven Gerrard is set to leave the Reds at the end of the season after prolific goal-scorer Luis Suarez joined Barcelona in a £75m deal last summer.

Liverpool are going to have to work extremely hard in the market bring a few players in, not just offensively but defensively

Furthermore, Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers is facing a battle to keep 20-year-old Raheem Sterling at the club amid reported interest from Arsenal and Chelsea.

Former Liverpool midfielder Redknapp reckons the Merseyside outfit could endure a difficult summer transfer market as Rodgers looks to make improvements ahead of next season.

“Liverpool lost (Luis) Suarez last year, Gerrard this, we’re going to have the whole Raheem Sterling ‘is he going to stay or go?’ saga all summer, so it’s going to be difficult times,” Redknapp told Sky Sports.

“Liverpool are going to have to work extremely hard in the market bring a few players in, not just offensively but defensively.

The Northern Irishman spent over £110m on new players last summer following Suarez’s big-money move to the La Liga champions.

However, most of the Liverpool manager’s signings have struggled to impress for the five-time European champions, particularly Mario Balotelli and Dejan Lovren.
