Rodgers calls for patience over Liverpool transfers

Brendan Rodgers has asked Liverpool fans to be patient whilst he pursues his transfer targets for the summer. Reported in the Liverpool Daily Post, the new Reds’ boss has promised more signings but is trying to get them at a fair price rather than be tricked into paying top fees because the club calling is Liverpool.

He said: “Obviously when it’s a club like Liverpool prices are always increased and so on, but I always felt it was important by the beginning of the season we could have the squad we want - and certainly by the end of transfer window I would hope that will be the case.

So far Liverpool have only made one signing, in the form of young striker Fabio Borini from Roma for a fee in the region of £10m. Speculation has been rife surrounding Anfield and the transfer goings on but the majority of that talk has been regarding those departing the club rather than arriving.

Andy Carroll has been subject to a number of bids and has dominated the headlines this summer, after failing to impress in the 18 months he’s had at the club. Alberto Aquliiani is also rumoured to be on the way out, but still there has been no decision for the midfielder who’s career never really got up and running in the North West.

Rodgers, though, insists this is all par for the course, saying: “There is lots of speculation. I’ve seen hundreds of names linked with Liverpool and there’s very few of them that were even close to coming here or even close that we have looked at.

Unfortunately for the supporters they’ve got to read it and put up with it. But the message is there is a lot of work going on, on a number of deals and hopefully we can get those completed by the end of August.

@Leob You do realize there is another month right? Also last time I checked Dempsey, Ramirez, british. He is simply looking at players that work in his system, and Joe Allen mostly has been the mastermind behind it at Swansea. I love it when people try to act like they are clever feeding assumptions off of simple rumour sites. Get a clue.

You let the cat out of the bag Brendan, and have confirmed its only British based players you are looking at, after all it is the smaller Premiership clubs that double prices when the bigger clubs come calling, you don't get that problem with European clubs so much.
