Rodgers targets ‘multi-dimensional’ Liverpool signings

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has said that he is looking to make ‘multi-dimensional’ signings over the summer to bolster his options, Sky Sports has reported.

A second place finish in the Premier League this season ensured that Liverpool will be in the Champions League for the first time since the 2009-10 season, but it makes their schedule more demanding and leaves Rodgers needing to add strength in depth to a squad lacking in quality beyond the starting XI.

The Reds have already been heavily linked with Southampton midfielder Adam Lallana, with reports of a £25m bid having been made. They are also expected to return to their pursuit of Dnipro winger Yevhen Konoplyanka, who they narrowly missed out on signing back in January.

And after seeing his side win a post-season friendly against Shamrock Rovers in Dublin, Rodgers said: "Our criteria that we look for is players with strong technique and football intelligence. They need to mentally have the attitude and the capacity to learn and they have to be so hungry to fight for every ball on every day in training and in the game.

"You'll get some players who are specialists and who need to play in particular positions, but if we can get players in who are multi-functional, and can play in different roles and are multi-dimensional in their work, it sets us up and gives me more options as a coach.’
