Brendan Rodgers has confirmed Liverpool do have money available to add a “little bit of quality” to their squad ahead of the new Premier League season.

The 40-year-old has been busy at work strengthening the Merseyside outfit over the course of the current transfer window, signing Luis Alberto, Iago Aspas, Simon Mignolet and Kolo Toure.

Rodgers is believed to be keen to sign a left-back amid interest in Valencia’s Frenchman Aly Cissokho, while the Reds have been linked with a £8.5m bid for Lorenzo Melgarejo.

And the Liverpool manager wants to add a couple of more players to his squad to ensure the club enjoys a fruitful campaign.

“There’s a lot of work going on behind the scenes. Obviously it’s not easy,” Rodgers told Liverpool’s website.

“We have seen that from other clubs’ experiences as well. But I’m confident we will add to the team. I don’t think there is any doubt that we need that.

“The players that we’ve brought in have added great depth and support to the team, but I think for us now, that little bit of quality could really set us up for an exciting season.

“Everyone at the club, the recruitment team, the board and ourselves, we are all working hard to make that happen, and hopefully we can.

“There’s money there available to get in the right types of players, but we don’t want to panic and just bring in anyone. It has to be someone who can come in and improve the team.”
