Benitez: New signings soon and positive talks with Parry

With the end of the season nearing and speculation surrounding arrivals and departures in the playing staff, Rafa Benitez has hinted that new signings could arrive at Anfield very soon – this month in fact.

Benitez said ‘œWe aren’t working on signing new players in June or July – but to sign them in May if that is possible.’

He continued ‘œWe will not be waiting until August to sign players. I think we will do things well before. Perhaps you will see some evidence in a few weeks.’

‘œIt will help me if the signings of new players are done early. It needs to be as soon as possible really, because then you know the situation and you can control the pre-season. Rick (Parry) knows the necessity of early deals. Our conservation the other day was very positive.

‘œWe are trying to fix the targets and progress. He knows that we want to sign the players right now.”

This summer is expected to be another summer of change for Liverpool with plenty of arrivals and departures – having new players in early will help the process, especially with the European Championships in June.
