Liverpool probably need to add at least six, perhaps seven players to their squad this summer, for the simple fact they need greater numbers to be remotely competitive in the Champions League. Fabio Borini is the most obvious but Rodgers wants a top-class experienced centre-half, a leader who can provide the foundation for another title challenge: is a Borussia Dortmund partner Mats Hummels. Further forward, if he is forced to spend seriously big on Adam Lallana, a deal that is progressing nicely, then the rest of the attacking targets are more obscure than imagined. But expect names like Yevhen Konoplyanka, Tom Ince, Will Hughes, Zakaria Bakkali, and even Jay Rodriguez to feature.
