The Reds have signed Ivory Coast centre-back Kolo Toure, Spanish pair Luis Alberto and Iago Aspas and Belgian goalkeeper Simon Mignolet so far this summer and the four acquisitions have Gerrard in an extremely positive mindset.
"I am really looking forward to getting back to work next week and seeing what the new players have got to offer. I want to see if they can help strengthen our squad to put in a better fight for a top-four finish," he said.
"It's always important to get faces in as soon as possible. They can get a full pre-season under their belt, get to know the lads and how the manager wants to play. There are some exciting names in there, so everyone is excited."
