Ayre promises further deals

Last Updated: Sun, 13 Jul 2014 18:09

Chief executive Ian Ayre is adamant Liverpool will carry on spending even though deals for Lazar Markovic and Divock Origi are close.

Ayre says the club's owners are determined to support manager Brendan Rodgers after the Reds' valiant Premier League title attempt last term and the recent disappointment of having to sell Luis Suarez to Barcelona.

Rodgers will now be given the chance to reinvest the reported £75m that is heading into the club's coffers from Suarez's move to Spain in a bid to go one better than last year.

A host of new faces have already arrived at Anfield this summer, with just short of £40million having been shelled out on bringing Rickie Lambert, Adam Lallana and Emre Can to Merseyside ahead of Liverpool's return to the Champions League.

Ayre told the Liverpool Echo: "It's all about building and progress. We'll aim to continue that throughout the summer.

"We've obviously sold Luis, but we''e had a busy few weeks with players arriving as well."

The next two recruits are likely to be Markovic and Origi with a combined fee of around £35m being paid out to bring the winger and striker in from Benfica and Lille respectively.
