Brendan Rodgers will turn his attention to Liverpool FC's "complex" transfer plans after sorting out his own future at Anfield.
The Liverpool boss has put pen to paper on a new deal with the Reds that is expected to keep him at the club until 2018.
Rodgers is targeting a number of acquisitions this summer to bolster the squad ahead of their return to the Champions League next season and Southampton's Adam Lallana is top of his wish-list.
Bayer Leverkusen's Emre Can, Sevilla full-back Albert Moreno and the Saints' Dejan Lovren are also believed to targets of the Liverpool manager who is set to be handed a sizeable transfer kitty this summer.
Rodgers, who guided the Reds to second-placed finish this season, admits many of the deals he hopes to tie up will be far from straightforward and Liverpool are likely to face a fight to prise Lallana from St Mary's Stadium.
Liverpool are working hard to bring their transfer targets to Anfield but Rodgers says the World Cup presents another stumbling block in their hopes of finalising deals early.
"Obviously it's the off-season and we have the World Cup and other various things going on," Rodgers said.
"People need to refresh and have a break because we have a long season ahead next season.
"But in the meantime, we're still working on signings, the staff behind the scenes, myself, the recruitment team, Ian Ayre - we're all working hard still in terms of looking to get players in. Of course, at the club, where we are now, the signings are complex; they are not all simple signings.
"But we need to strengthen up the squad and that's something that we're working hard to do over the next number of weeks."
Swansea City goalkeeper Michel Vorm - a player Rodgers brought to the Liberty Stadium when in charge of the south Wales club - is also understood to be a target for Liverpool this summer.
