Manager Brendan Rodgers has admitted that Liverpool have "one or two more things" left to do before the end of the transfer window as he tries to build a team capable of winning at least one trophy.

The Merseyside club have already strengthened all their lines with Rickie Lambert, Adam Lallana, Emre Can, Lazar Markovic, Dejan Lovren, Javier Manquillo, Alberto Moreno and Divock Origi - although the young Belgian striker has returned to Lille on a season-long loan.

However, after Luis Suarez left the team for Barcelona they are reportedly still on the market for a striker to partner Daniel Sturridge up front.

And questioned ahead of their Premier League opener against Southampton about his transfer plans in the final weeks of the market, Rodgers said: "We are nearly done. We hope to add one or two more in areas we need to and if we do that then we will have had a great window."

"This will probably be the biggest window for the next couple of years but I hope to get one or two more in."

"We'll look to improve that top end of the field, but if the right player doesn't come along, we'll play with what we've got," he said during a press conference.

Even though Suarez has departed, the manager believes that the new Liverpool squad is stronger than last season as it now has the ability to cope with injuries.

"The players we've brought in will allow us to deal with injuries and more games. We needed to bring in players this summer," he said.

"The spotlight is on the team, we won't be relying on Daniel Sturridge to score goals. The group has been developing and working well.

"We're looking to make this a sustainable team for the next 5-10 years."

And questioned about the target for the coming season, he said: "We want to win a trophy. In the Premier League it is about sustaining Champions League football.

"I've seen some odds and we're not even in the top four. People will rightly look to City and Chelsea but we are here to challenge.

"It counts for nothing what happened last year. But we will carry the belief. We arrived a year early but this year we will be challenging and up there again."
