Brendan Rodgers says Liverpool want to bring in “quality” signings before the summer transfer window closes next week.

The 40-year-old has already signed Luis Alberto, Iago Aspas, Simon Mignolet and Kolo Toure in recent months, while the Northern Irishman secured Aly Cissokho on a season-long loan last week.

However, Rodgers is still believed to be keen to sign a left-sided attacking midfielder amid reports the Reds are weighing up a bid for Chelsea duo Juan Mata and Victor Moses.

The Liverpool manager refused to put a number on how many signings he hopes to make before 2 September, but Rodgers is optimistic the Reds can bring in quality players.

“There’s no doubt we need more numbers but it’s about quality – hopefully we can bring that quality in,” Rodgers told Sky Sports News.

“We’re certainly looking at ins, we’re hoping to get a few players in and that will continue right until the end of the window.

“There’s no amount of players wanted, we’re just looking to get quality players in and if we can do that, we’ll be happy.”

Joe Allen, Cissokho and Toure all suffered injury setbacks in Liverpool’s 4-2 victory over Notts County in the Capital One Cup on Tuesday night.
