The Reds boss told reporters in Melbourne on Monday of his desire for more support “at the end of the field” and cover for left-back.

“We probably need a wee bit more support at the top end of the field and that’s something we’ll look out for. It’s not really about numbers, it’s about quality.

“That’ll be mixed with needing cover in the left-back position – that’s something we’re looking at. And we want that extra bit of quality at the top end of the field.

“If we can do that over the next number of weeks we’ll be happy.”

Valencia’s French left back Aly Cissokho has been linked with Liverpool recently, with murmurs of a loan deal being struck with an option to buy. Valencia president Amadeo Salvo reportedly spoke of the deal to Radio Marca on Monday.

Liverpool have also shown interest in Chelsea‘s English left-back Ryan Bertrand, but the deal was reportedly rejected.

Chief scout Barry Hunter has flown to Melbourne where he will provide Rodgers an update and discuss transfer targets.
