Brendan Rodgers has outlined the criteria he'll be looking for when it comes to strengthening the Liverpool squad this summer.
Having been delighted by the impact made by the January arrivals of Daniel Sturridge and Philippe Coutinho, the boss admits he'll be aiming to recruit players who can make a similar impression on his team.
"It is quality we are after, not quantity," said Rodgers.
"There is no doubt there is a natural rebuilding that will come with the likes of Jamie Carragher retiring. I am happy with the squad if I can then put another three or four quality players to it.
"We see Coutinho and Daniel Sturridge's quality in January, if we bring in another three or four players of that quality and add that to what we have got then we have got a strong squad. I'm talking about two players in every outfield position and your three goalkeepers. Then below that having young players who can support that.
"There is a lot of terrific work going on behind the scenes with the scouting department getting lists together. Of course you have an ideal target, but you have to have three players and if one doesn't come off you have to be comfortable with the other two. We are much better placed now than we were last summer."
