Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher believes Brendan Rodgers will spend big in completing deals before the start of the season.

The Merseyside club kick start the 2015/16 season with an away trip to the Britannia Stadium as they take on Stoke City in the opening game of the new campaign. The Reds have already completed four deals so far in the transfer window.

Midfielder James Milner and goalkeeper Adam Bogdan were signed on a free transfer. In addition to this, Danny Ings from Burnley and defender Joe Gomez from Charlton Athletic are the new faces to join Liverpool this summer.

The former Reds defender has backed Rodgers to splash the cash in making quality additions to bolster the squad for the new season.

"I expect Liverpool will spend a few quid in the next few weeks before the start of the season," Carragher told talkSPORT.

"It was good to get the free transfers over the line quickly, they were probably set in stone a few months ago."

"Now it's about seeing who is available at a bigger price, although when you're paying big money it seems to take a lot longer, maybe they'll have to haggle over a fee," the Anfield favourite said.

Meanwhile, Germany Under-21 coach Horst Hrubesch has heaped praise on Emre Can after the Liverpool midfielder impressed for his national side during the Euro Under-21 championship in the Czech Republic.

Can has already scored a goal and managed an assist, which has helped Germany sit on top of Group A.

"He's the player who will seize the game and set the tone. He's a sublime footballer and there is nothing he can't do. His physique and his passing game are extraordinary and he also reads the game very well," Hrubesch explained.

"You just have to look at how he established himself at Liverpool. And he's done it at a very young age, so these experiences will really pay off one day."
