Liverpool have already spent £57million on Rickie Lambert, Adam Lallana, Emre Can and Lazar Markovic. They don’t intend to stop here as Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is ready to spend another £75million pocketed from the Luis Suarez deal to Barcelona.

Rodgers confirmed none of the summer signings so far has anything to do with the Suarez sale to Barcelona and all of them were always earmarked to come in. Fenway Sports Group have given the green light to Brendan Rodgers to use the money from the Suarez deal to revamp the squad as the club mark their return to Champions league football.

“The signings we have made have no relation to Luis going, absolutely – these were players that were always earmarked to come in,” Rodgers confirmed.

“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.

“Obviously Luis going gives us the clout to go and spend more and 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.”

Liverpool failed to persuade Alexis Sanchez as he opted for Arsenal, but Rodgers suggests that was a one-off and several top players want to join the European giants.

“I don’t think so,” he added.

“That was one where geography dictated where he wanted to go – simple as that. It’s been the other way.

“Lots of players are really impressed by what we are doing as a club and really excited about coming to Liverpool.

“It wasn’t due to a lack of ambition by the club. It was about where the player and his family wanted to choose to live.

“He’s a fantastic player and would have suited us. His profile would have been great but it was not to be and we move on.”

Liverpool have ended their interest in Swansea City striker Wilfried Bony and are now looking to sign Loic Remy who has a £8million release clause in his contract. They are also close to signing Divock Origi for a reported fee of £6million. Liverpool have also made bids for Southampton defender Dejan Lovren and Swansea left-back Ben Davies. Several unconfirmed reports suggest that Liverpool are also looking to sign Paul Pogba, Arturo Vidal or Marco Reus.
