Jagielka wants to be challenging for the top four next season.
"I've seen enough to suggest we could challenge for top four again next season," Jagielka told the Liverpool Echo.
"But then it's the same again, it's the whole question of how we do in the transfer market; in terms of keeping hold of our players and bringing in a few.
"We had a good summer transfer window last year with the loan signings and it's important the manager is just as active before the start of the season to keep the buzz going.
"I think with the squad we've got, we wouldn't accept performing well in one competition and being disastrous in the other one. That's the type of lads we are.
"And with the right people coming in over the summer, and a bit more depth to the squad, it's an exciting time for us."
