Liverpool owner John W Henry is ready to back Brendan Rodgers in the summer market to the tune of £60 million - if the qualify for the Champions League.

The Mail on Sunday says Rodgers wants to sign two centre-halves, a left-back, creative midfielder, winger and back-up striker to compete on four fronts next season.

He has already been linked with Ukraine winger Yevhen Konoplyanka of Dnipro, Benfica's Nicolas Gaitan, Switzerland left-back Ricardo Rodriguez and Cardiff City centre-back Steven Caulker.
