Liverpool legend Steve McManaman says the squad needs depth to cope with a Champions League campaign.

McManaman reckons that they need to add both quality and depth next season if they're to continue making progress.

"I think Liverpool need to bulk up in all areas so if they can bring five or six players in that can improve their team and improve their squad, if your a Liverpool fan that's what you want," said the former Champions League winner, speaking to Mirror Football.

"You want to bring in as many players to improve because, I think we know a couple of people are leaving - Victor Moses will go of course, back to Chelsea - so Liverpool will need a significant number of players if they want to compete in the league and the Champions League.

"If they can improve on those central areas then I think they'll be great. Steven Gerrard's not going to play forever. Lucas and Jordan Henderson or Henderson and Joe Allen have done well this year, but you can always improve can't you.

"If you bring in another centre-forward and then another centre-forward then it'll make the fans very, very happy."
