Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher isn't surprised to see manager Brendan Rodgers doing early transfer business.

The club have agreed deals in principle to add defender Kolo Toure and forward Iago Aspas since the conclusion of 2012-13 and Carragher insists there are promising signs for his old team.

"I'm sure Brendan Rodgers has learnt a lot over the last 12 months and I think he's raring to go this season," the 35-year-old told Sky Sports.

"I spoke to him at the end of the season and he wants to get his business done early. At the moment it looks like Liverpool are trying to get players in as quickly as possible so they are ready for the start of the season."
