Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson believes the Merseysiders have shown their intentions ahead of the new campaign by acting early in the transfer window "to get the players the club want".

Brendan Rodgers already made a massive overhaul last summer to cope with the departure of Luis Suarez to Barcelona by signing Alberto Moreno, Mario Balotelli, Adam Lallana, Rickie Lambert, Lazar Markovic, Emre Can, Dejan Lovren, Javier Manquillo and Divock Origi – who remained on loan at Lille.

But after a disappointing campaign, with no silverware or Champions League spot, Rodgers has gone to the well one more time in an attempt to build a title-winning team.

And while Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester United and Manchester City have been slow so far in the transfer window, Rodgers has already completed six additions in James Milner, Danny Ings, Joe Gomez, Adam Bogdan, Roberto Firmino and Nathaniel Clyne.

Henderson has hailed Rodgers' business while hoping the new signings have a "huge impact" at Anfield.

"It's a huge boost – all of the signings have been really positive," Henderson told

"I think we've shown good intent early on in the transfer window to go and get the players that we want. They're big players as well, and I'm sure they'll have a huge impact on Liverpool, hopefully this season."

Liverpool have also parted ways with right-back Glen Johnson and goalkeeper Brad Jones after their contracts expired, while club legend Steven Gerrard has joined LA Galaxy.

Rodgers has been urged to spend further during the summer transfer window to get a proven goalscorer, while Raheem Sterling's future at the club remains up in the air amid speculation linking him with a move to Manchester City.
