Liverpool FC to spend £100m

ct-anfieldLiverpool manager Brendan Rodgers, fresh from signing a new four year deal, has been told by the board that he should spend “whatever it takes” to ensure that next season’s return of Champions’ League football is not a one off.

Although the club missed winning the title by a narrow margin, both Rodgers and the club’s owners are adamant that the main measure of success during the course of Rodgers’ new four-year contract will be a continued presence in European football’s elite competition. And Rodgers has been told he has up to £100 million to ensure it happens.

A source close to the club said: “Of course we want to win (the league) but it’s Europe that is the game changer in terms of finance and profile. Top players want Champions League nights, it’s as simple as that.”

Rodgers has already drawn up an extensive list of targets this summer, including Man City’s Micah Richards and Southampton’s Adam Lalanna.

    Flex- Sturridge was left on the bench at Chelsea and City, Coutinho on the bench at Inter, Sakho at PSG…

    LFC should sign Shaqiri, Konoplyanka, Alex Song, Moreno and Ashley Cole. Then we are home and dry for UCL and other competitions.

    Why advertise you spending budget? Now clubs will be jacking their prices because they know Rogers has a substantial war chest. Already llana has gone from $20 million price tag to $30 million

    Realistically, lalana, Cole, Richards, shaqiri/pedro and a decent cb..tho I think Rogers has e ability to mould our current CBs..

    We don’t have the money to make too many big signings…
    Personally I think Ashley Cole would be quite a catch.. We should break our transfer record for Ross Barkley (£35-40 mil should do it).. Ashley on a Free and we’ve two players that will make a big difference to our first team..
    I’d also like Shaqiri , Micah Richards, and one of Yan M’Vila/Javi Martinez/William Cavallho as well as Emre Can.. And offer Barca Agger & Reina plus a bit of money for Alexis Sanchez…
    I’d sell..
    Iago Aspas (6-7m)
    Luis Alberto (6-7m)
    Oussama Assaidi (3-4m)
    Connor Coady (1-2m)
    Kristian Adorjan (1-2m)
    Martin Kelly (4-5m)
    Sebastian Coates (1-2m)
    Jose Enrique (6-8m)
    Lucas Leiva (9-10m)
    Obviously Moses and Cissoko gone.
    Suso, Texeira , Brannagan, & Ibe to get a few chances..

    Lee – no. Liverpool should try and flog Borini Reina Coates Assaidi Robinson Kelly Toure Aspas Alberto lucus and with all that above we would have over 40 mill just in player sales recouped back into club

    Sanchez – from barca should be brought match juventus offer for him and get him in!

    Lovren – good solid Center half. Try and get him and lallana

    Lallana – will get better plays in many team systems and shapes and will fit well with English core at Lfc

    Rodriguez – from Wolfsburg – better then moreno for me , quick young bright and his passes are great coming out from back this guy is a must – never mind bloody Moreno .

    Vorm – like him he is very good with our type of playing style also knows Brendan and Allen to, good second choice keeper

    Emre can – good young all rounder and for a good player with his stock always rising – buy now

    Konoplyanka – great squad player for away days in Europe – fast and skilful can cover for sterling etc – not to much to pay for and wages will be ok to

    Caulker – good defender and will get better knowing how the boss works –

    liverpool usafan – we didn’t & would never advertise our budget but reporters have their sources as you should know! I’d like Firmino or Cuadrado, Iturbe or Konoplyanka, Rakitic, Will Hughes & Delle Alli, Javi Martinez, Moreno or Rojo or Rodriguez & Kaylor Navas. Plenty of younguns on my list as well but lets just start with that lot!!

    Lallana hasn’t proved him self yet is he another Charlie Adams a 1 year wonder he is 24 if he was any good would he not have been in the premier league b4 as for Richards I would only take him on a free transfer cause he won’t drop his wages to much yes I would buy cole shaqiri pedro they have proved them selfs time and time again we have to rember to do best for the club don’t spend to much money but we need to get 1 more midfielder winger striker and 3 defenders and Bertrand cole and shaw would be the 1’s I would go for tello shaqiri pedro and as for a striker tevis go out and win champions league ynwa

    The reason LFC will have 100 million to spend is because Suarez will be sold to the highest bidder in this transfer window.

    We should cut out the bullshit about these has beens. Buy Messi & Ronaldo to make worlds best attack. Buy Silva & Iniesta to make a worlds best midfield. Then only a couple of additions to the defence (maybe Busquets & Lahm) and we would really be challenging next season! Oh and maybe a goalie to compete with Mingnolet (Neuer or Casillas anyone?). I think we could pull these of with a modest of 1,5 billion usd

    why isn’t any one talking about. Alex Song…..he is the only player lacking in LFC,the rest can come to deepen the squad

    @this is anfield – lallana is 26. Can I suggest that you use some kind of punctuation also as it was difficult to read what you had written. As for him not being very good, it appears that he is good enough to go to the world cup. In addition to that he played against each and every premier league team last season and did very well.

    There is no way that City would allow Richards to leave on a free and your assumption that he is on a large wage is just that, an assumption.

    I am guessing that the “Cole” that you mention is Ashley Cole? If it is then he is on a free having left Chelsea.

    Your list of “must buys” is impressive and contradicts your theory about Lallana. Most of the attacking options stated are bench warmwrs for their clubs and have “No” premier league experience. Why choose them over an English international with premier league experience?
