Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers is planning to sign six more players in this summer transfer window, reports the Mirror.

The Reds have already completed deals for Rickie Lambert and Adam Lallana from Southampton, while adding Emre Can, who arrived from Bayer Leverkusen, to their midfield. However, the Merseyside club allowed their star player Luis Suarez join Barcelona.

The Uruguayan international agreed terms to join the Catalan club in a deal for a fee, which is believed to be around £75m. The report claims Rodgers wants to invest the fee from Suarez's sale and is planning to add six more new faces to the squad this summer.

The Northern Irishman is preparing to sign half a dozen of players for a cumulative deal worth around £135m. Benfica winger Lazar Markovic is edging towards completing his £20m switch to the Merseyside club.

Markovic will be the first of six signings to likely arrive at Anfield. Lille forward Divock Origi could follow the winger, but the Belgium international could be sent back on a season-long loan to the French club.

Rodgers has not completed his business with Southampton as he is planning to make a raid in making a double swoop for their striker Jay Rodriguez and centre-back Dejan Lovren. The Croatian international has already revealed his interest in joining Liverpool in the ongoing transfer window.

The Reds boss is also planning to raid his former club Swansea in signing two of their players, Ben Davies and Michel Vorm. Liverpool have long been interested in signing Sevilla star Alberto Moreno. However, any failure on landing the Spaniard could see Rodgers turn his attention on Davies to strengthen Liverpool's left-back position.

The Welsh club wants £6m for Vorm and Liverpool are ready to match Swansea's price tag for the Dutch international goalkeeper.

Should the report be true, Rodgers will add Markovic, Origi, Rodriguez, Lovren, Davies and Vorm to Liverpool squad this summer, along with Lallana, Lambert and Can.

The Anfield club return to the Champions League next season. With Liverpool challenging for silverware in four competitions, Rodgers needs to have a large squad to progress further in all competitions.

Tottenham Hotspur allowed Gareth Bale join Real Madrid for £86m last summer. The north London club invested the money from the Welshman's sale in signing over half a dozen of players.

Spurs struggled in all competitions last season and the fear amongst Liverpool faithful is whether the Reds could also fail to shine in the Premier League in the upcoming campaign. However, Rodgers is confident that he is capable of averting any difficulties as he wants his side to challenge top clubs for silverware next season.
