Liverpool football chief Damien Comolli admits there'll be a focus on improving the talent coming through the academy.
Comolli was eager to emphasise the point of focusing on local English talent.
He told liverpoolfc.tv: "In the short term, in my position you always think of the next window or the next two windows and I think everybody has got this in mind. As I've just joined, we've got only a few weeks to prepare for the window but we are also looking at the summer transfer window.
"That's what I would call short term but then long term we are already looking at things like the pre-season tour for next season, we are already looking at the academy to see what we can improve, what the targets are there in England, young players who we could bring in, the same thing about Europe, to identify players around Europe that we'll be trying to bring in.
"It's a mix of short term and long term which I think is one of the beauties of this job."
