Steven Gerrard: Hopeful Liverpool can push for a top four finish next season

Iago Aspas, Simon Mignolet, Luis Alberto and Kolo Toure have made the move to Anfield this summer with more new faces expected following the departure of Andy Carroll.

Shakhtar Donetsk's highly-rated midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan is among those tipped to join Liverpool's ranks, and Reds skipper Gerrard is relishing the prospect of returning to action.

"I'm really looking forward to getting started, especially with the news of us making a few signings," said Gerrard.

"It's always important to get faces in as soon as possible; they can get a full pre-season under their belt, get to know the lads and how the manager wants to play.

"There are some exciting names in there so everyone is excited."

While the likes of Alberto and Aspas may not be well-known names in England, Gerrard has full confidence in the manager and his backroom staff.

"I know very little about them, but I have a lot belief and confidence in Brendan and the scouting department that they are going to make the right decisions and I have seen bits and bobs of the new signings we have made," he told LFC TV.

"I am really looking forward to getting back to work next week and seeing what the new players have got to offer and see if they can help strengthen our squad to put in a better fight for a top-four finish."
