Liverpool transfer news: Brendan Rodgers plans more Anfield signings this summer
The Reds have been linked with Alberto Moreno among other stars
Thursday 31 July 2014
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has suggested that his summer spending could continue after already parting with almost £100m so far during the transfer window.
The Premier League runners-up have already spent £89m plus agent fees on Rickie Lambert, Adam Lallana, Emre Can, Lazar Markovic, Dejan Lovren, and Divock Origi having sold striker Luis Suarez to Barcelona for £75m.
Discussing the Anfield club's transfer policy this summer, Rodgers said the Reds still have work to do ahead of 1st September.
"We still have some positions that we want to fill within the squad so that by the end of August we have a strong group of players to go forward with," he said.

"We've still got some business to do. We've brought in specific players for specific roles, players that have the profile of how we work.
"A lot of the players that have come in, the transition has been very smooth and that should make the adjustment that bit easier.
"Of course some of them are young and coming to a different country, like Emre Can. That will take a little bit of time. The players are transitioning very well, though it will take a little bit of time."
One player who could leave Merseyside, however is Fabio Borini after Gus Poyet confirmed that Sunderland are in talks again with Liverpool over a deal.
The North East club seemed likely to finalise a package for the Italian striker last month but, according to The Express, it appears the £14m switch is back on.
Liverpool kick off their campaign by playing host to Southampton, who they have signed three players from, on 17th August.
