Rodgers keen to get down to buisness
Posted On May 1, 2013
Brendan Rodgers has revealed that he is keen to conclude any transfer business as early as possible this summer, as he aims to replicate the success he had in the January window.
Daniel Sturridge and Philippe Coutinho both joined the club at the start of the year, and both have impressed since signing.
Rodgers, told Sky Sports that he believes the squad needs “a bit more depth and quality” going forward, has been linked with moves for a host of players including Swansea City captain Ashley Williams an Christan Eriksen of Ajax.
Meanwhile, it has been reported that one deal is already near completion, after it was claimed that Reading defender Alex Pearce looks set to join the club after rejecting a new deal with the Royals, who were relegated back to the Championship last weekend.
The 24 year old, who scored on his international debut for the Republic of Ireland last September, has been with Reading since turning professional in 2006, and worked with Rodgers when he briefly managed at the Madejski Stadium in 2009.
The Reds are looking to rebuild their defence for next season, with Martin Skrtel and Sebastian Coates looking likely to leave Anfield, along with the soon-to-be retired Jamie Carragher.
