The Reds play Preston North End in their first pre-season friendly this weekend, before embarking on a tour of the Far East and Australia.

Rodgers has already brought in defender Kolo Toure, attackers Luis Alberto and Iago Aspas and goalkeeper Simon Mignolet to provide new options and competition for places in the squad.

However, Liverpool were dealt a blow last week, losing out on the big signing of Henrikh Mkhitaryan to Borussia Dortmund.

But Rodgers says the transfer committee at the club are doing a fine job and he is confident of building his squad ready for challenging next season.

“Our recruitment team are doing a great job behind the scenes in compiling lists of players that we can afford and might be available for us,” Rodgers told the club’s official website.

“What we’ve done in the early part of the summer is to improve the squad. That’s something I feel we’ve done with the players we’ve brought in.

“Now what’s important over the next three to five weeks is improving the team. That’s something the club is working very hard at.

“I’m sure by the time the end of August comes we’ll be ready and we’ll have a terrific squad ready to challenge.”
