With a number of key players having departed in the close season, such as the influential Dirk Kuyt and Maxi Rodriguez, Rodgers has a number of gaps that he needs to plug before the window closes.
"The reality is the club probably lacked depth last year," said Rodgers. "We need to make a few signings just to get back to those numbers. I believe we will do. But they are specific targets we are after and I believe when we get those players in they will make a difference for us."
