Rodgers has already brought four newcomers — goalkeeper Simon Mignolet, defender Kolo Toure, midfielder Luis Alberto and forward Iago Aspas — to Anfield this summer, but he is eager to strengthen his side further by bringing in the attacking talents who could be the final piece in the jigsaw.

The Northern Irishman had hoped to sign Henrikh Mkhitaryan before the Armenian moved to Borussia Dortmund and remains keen to add an attacking midfielder.

Ajax’s Christian Eriksen is interesting Rodgers, but there are reports AC Milan are set to sign the Denmark international and Rodgers said no deals are imminent.

"Nothing is close but plenty of work is going on," he told the Liverpool Echo while in Indonesia. "How near or far we are, I will find out in Melbourne. There is daily dialogue going on but I am confident that we will get the one or two players who will really excite and complete the jigsaw.

"It was great to make the four signings so early on but we have still got some more work to do to strengthen the team."
