Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has promised to strengthen his squad in order to challenge for multiple honours next season.
The German tactician is on the verge of steering the Reds back into the UEFA Champions League with a fourth placed finish ahead of Arsenal – with only relegated Middlesbrough on the final day of the season in their way.
However, Klopp concedes that if they were to win trophies next season, they needed to strengthen to compete in the Premier League and Champions League.
The Merseyside outfit have been plagued by inconsistent displays against the teams in the bottom half of the Premier League this season and adding a bit more steel and depth to the squad could transform Klopp's side into genuine title contenders.
"We need to be strong because around us we’ll have a lot of quality and they will be stronger so we will be strong – one hundred percent,” he told FourFourTwo.
"Yes, different options, we have another tournament to play. So that’s clear, we know everything and still then, you need to be kind of lucky with injuries.
"Because the injuries we had this year were not injuries from training but in the games. It was knocks and ankle and ligament and really, things you have no influence on.
"It happens in the challenge, we didn’t do it on the training ground and problems here and problems there," the former Dortmund boss added.
"So these significant injuries they were all from the pitch, they were all from the game. So you can say, ‘can you sort this problem?’ One hundred percent, no. But again we learnt a lot and we will bring in quality."
