The Reds completed the £10m signing of Divock Origi on Tuesday, who becomes their sixth new arrival of the summer transfer window after Rickie Lambert, Adam Lallana, Emre Can, Lazar Markovic and Dejan Lovren.
I think a top-four finish will still be good enough for the club next season, Champions League qualification would be a good end to the campaign
Despite finishing in second place behind champions Manchester City last season, former Reds striker Heskey believes Brendan Rodgers’s side would be content with a place in the top four come May 2015.
“It will be difficult,” Heskey told talkSPORT.
“Defensively they need to be a little bit stronger, but they’re very strong on the counter-attack.
“Yes, they may have lost the goals of Luis Suarez, but they have done some good business this summer, they’ve brought in some exceptional players and it’s just about giving the team that time to gel now.
“It’s also time for Daniel Sturridge to step up now and really push himself in the Premier League.
“I think a top-four finish will still be good enough for the club next season, Champions League qualification would be a good end to the campaign.”
