Boy have Liverpool been busy this summer. Brendan Rodgers must have been sorely disappointed with his club’s performance last season (or at least all too aware of the short-comings of his squad) as he is taking numerous steps to strengthen this summer.

We’ve seen old heads like Kolo Toure come in along with La Liga aces Luis Alberto Iago Aspas and Aly Cissokho. Then there’s last season’s best Premier League goalkeeper Simon Mignolet. It’s been a busy summer for the Reds and you get the feeling that Brendan Rodgers has been working his butt off.

Best of all there’s still more to come. Earlier this summer the Reds made a bid for Atletico Madrid forward Diego Costa. They’ve also been in the running for Willian an exciting Brazilian talent.

And there’s more: according to The Star they’re in the running for Kyriakos Papadopoulos Schalke’s young defensive talent.

At just 21-years-old the Greek ace has already earned a reputation for being one of the best young defenders in Europe. He’s got a real physical presence is dominant in the air and is also effective along the ground. Given what he’s already capable of his potential is quite startling.
