Brendan Rodgers has been buoyed by the transfer business Liverpool have conducted so far this summer and plans to continue strengthening his options with the right type of player.

The boss initially recruited England internationals Rickie Lambert and Adam Lallana from Southampton, adding genuine Barclays Premier League experience to his ranks.

Next was a deal for versatile German midfielder Emre Can, who jetted in from Bayer Leverkusen, before, most recently, 20-year-old forward Lazar Markovic signed on the dotted line too.

With Champions League football on the agenda this season and Luis Suarez having departed for Barcelona, Rodgers is keen for more activity in the window - but only of the worthwhile kind.

"We felt last year we just never had the depth and we are in the Champions League this year, so we have to ensure we have as strong a squad as possible," said the manager.

"We are getting the right type of player in. But we certainly won't spend just for the sake of spending. It has to be the sort of player who is going to improve us."

The Reds racked up 101 goals in the Premier League in 2013-14 as they narrowly missed out on scooping the championship to Manchester City on the final day of the campaign.

Through a combination of maintaining the positive work of last season and bringing creative talent to Anfield this summer, Rodgers is determined to spread the scoring across his team.

He said: "In the times Daniel [Sturridge] has played up there without Luis he has shown his qualities. But the onus is not really on one player, the strength of us has been the team.

"When I came in, people talked about how Luis didn't score regularly, how he didn't get enough opportunities or take them. In the last two years we've proved with the number of chances we create you can get goals.

"But it is not just about him. We scored 101 goals last season and he got 31 of them. We have goals all across the team and will bring in players we think can assist with making them."
