RODGERS TARGETS NEW SIGNINGS

Friends Of Liverpool

New Liverpool Manager Brendan Rodgers has made clear his intentions to sign three or four new signings to his Liverpool squad following the final depature of Italian mis-fit Alberto Aquilaini to Fiorentino

The Liverpool manager said: “There is nothing imminent just yet, not that I am aware of, but hopefully things will progress over the next couple of days.

It may take one or two moves to spark everything off.
I want players in sooner rather than later, it is important to get the group together as quickly as possible, but if not we will just have to be patient. I’d be happy as long as we have some in before the end of August.

“I have also looked at one or two loan deals from abroad. There are some quality players in that market that I have inquired about. The make-up of the group will change before the season starts and that will change the dynamic of the team also.”

Rodgers denied the exclusion of Andy Carroll and Daniel Agger from Liverpool’s trip to Belarus was connected to doubts over their futures at Anfield. The Dane’s agent, Per Steffensen, has denied claims Agger has been approached by Liverpool over a new contract.

The Liverpool manager added: “Daniel was always going to stay behind. We have a behind-closed-doors game for him this weekend to help his match fitness. It is straightforward with Andy too. I didn’t want senior players coming over if they weren’t going to get games. He is another who stayed at home to work on his condition.”

Hopefully the signings of Joe Allen, Gaston Rameriz and Clint Dempsey will augment the Liverpool side which badly needs fresh faces.
