Brendan Rodgers wants to make four new signings this summer to give Liverpool's squad the depth to become credible Champions League challengers.
The club have made significant progress on the back of a January transfer window which saw them land Daniel Sturridge and Philippe Coutinho.
Rodgers is eager to sign similar quality players in the close season and plans have already been put into place for the recruitment drive.
Feyenoord's Stefan De Vrij and Swansea captain Ashley Williams will be considered as potential new central defenders, while Newcastle forward Hatem Ben Arfa, winger Tom Ince of Blackpool and Paris Saint-Germain striker Kevin Gameiro will also come under consideration.
