Rodgers believes adding to the squad will have a positive effect all round.
"If you ask the players here, what they want is a competitive group," he said. "Of course they want to play but they know what makes them play at their best is competition and that is what we are striving to do.
"A competitive squad is knowing you have to be at the top of your game week in, week out to retain the shirt else there is someone in the background who can take your place.
"If we are going to compete going forward we need to have that."
