Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has confirmed that the Reds will not be signing any more centre-halves this summer.
The Merseyside club have been one of the busiest clubs in the English top-flight this summer and have already completed six signings thus far. The Northern Irishman has strengthened all across his squad, as he looks to put last season's disappointment behind and qualify for the Champions League next season.
Liverpool have brought in Danny Ings, James Milner, Roberto Firmino, Nathaniel Clyne, Joe Gomez and Adam Bogdan and according to the Mirror, the Reds are on the verge of signing Christian Benteke from Aston Villa after triggering his £32.5m ($50.7) release clause.
However, Liverpool have lost two key players during the summer in Steven Gerrard and Raheem Sterling, who have joined MLS side LA Galaxy and Manchester City respectively. But Rodgers has been boosted as most of his core players have committed their long-term futures by penning new contracts with the club.
The former Swansea City manager has made two defensive signings this summer, in Gomez and Clyne, and he has now confirmed that he will not be adding more players to the heart of his back line as he has a total of five players in the senior squad capable of playing as a central defender.
"I think we're fine for centre-halves. We've got the two boys who started (Skrtel and Sakho) and then Lovren and Toure," Rodgers said, as quoted by the Liverpool Echo.
"Young Gomez can play in there too so we're fine in that area. Joe played a lot of his career at Charlton in the middle. He's got all the tools to play across the back four and he's a big talent," the Northern Irishman added.
