Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has hinted that he will bring in players with a proven track record in winning games in the transfer market this summer.
Could Rodgers be looking towards experience to help steer his side in the direction of the league’s top four?
“A lot of great learning has taken place throughout the year both on and off the field,” he told the club’s official website. “Now we want to build on the positive impact of the second half of the season.
“It’s our job as a club to look to bring in the types of players who will allow us to kick on again.
“In order to breed the consistency needed to give us success, we need to bring in winners – those with the winning mentality.”
Liverpool have already been linked with the likes of Manchester City‘s Kolo Toure and Schalke’s Kyriakos Papadopoulos, both highly-rated big name players.
“There is a lot of work going on behind the scenes in order to reinforce the group.
“In order to breed the consistency needed to give us success, we need to bring in winners – those with the winning mentality.
“Everyone has to play a part in leadership.
“You get different types of leadership – some are purely by action and inspiration, others by organisation and more verbal.
“Taking on that responsibility is something that has to come from within the group here, but we’re also looking to bring in that type of player.”
