Brendan Rodgers says he is expecting Liverpool to make further signings in the “next three to five weeks” ahead of the start of the Premier League season.

The Reds have been one of the top-flight’s busiest clubs this summer after snapping up Spanish duo Iago Aspas and Luis Alberto, as well as Kolo Toure and Simon Mignolet.

Liverpool paid the price for failing to get their business done ahead of the last week of August last summer, with Rodgers’ side struggling until Philippe Coutinho and Daniel Sturridge were signed in January.

The Reds boss hailed his recruitment team for their hard work behind the scenes, and the 40-year-old is still optimistic that he can further strengthen his squad before the domestic season starts on 17 August.

“Our recruitment team are doing a great job behind the scenes in compiling lists of players that we can afford and might be available for us,” Rodgers told Liverpool’s website.

“What we’ve done in the early part of the summer is to improve the squad. That’s something I feel we’ve done with the players we’ve brought in.

“Now what’s important over the next three to five weeks is improving the team. That’s something the club is working very hard at.

“I’m sure by the time the end of August comes we’ll be ready and we’ll have a terrific squad ready to challenge.”
