Liverpool are reportedly willing to spend in excess of £100 million in transfers this summer as they look to strengthen their squad following the departure of Luis Suarez, who recent joined Barcelona for a reported of £75 million.

Despite having already spent around £60 million on the transfers of Rickie Lambert, Adam Lallana (both Southampton), Lazar Markovic (Benfica) and Emre Can (Bayer Leverkusen), Reds boss Brendan Rodgers, according to the Daily Mail, is keen to spend some more so that they become a formidable opponent next season.

Rodgers, who did wonders with the club last season, leading them to a second-place finish for the first time since the 2008/09 season, is hoping to add more depth to the squad so that he will be able to shuffle the pack due to his side's participation in the Champions League.

"We felt last year we never had the depth; we are in the Champions' League this year so we have to ensure we have a strong as squad as possible," said Rodgers, who added that Liverpool's signing were not influenced by the departure of their key player Suarez.

However, the Northern Irishman insisted that Suarez's departure for a lucrative transfer fee has given them the chance to being in "right type" of players this summer.

One of those players could be Loic Remy. After having being snubbed by Alexis Sanchez, who chose to join Arsenal from Barcelona, Liverpool are now reportedly leading the race to sign Queen Park Rangers striker Remy.

Although the Gunners were thought to be the favourites to land the 27-year-old striker, who was impressive during his loan spell at Newcastle last season, they decided to look at other options due to Remy's high wage demands.

Now, according to a report in the Metro, Liverpool are already holding talks with QPR over the transfer the French striker, who has an £8million release clause in his contract.

The clause reportedly states that any top four club will be able to sign Remy for £8 million, while other teams will have to pay £4 million extra to secure the Frenchman's services.

Liverpool have also been heavily linked with a move for Southampton centre-back Dejan Lovren, while they are also in the hunt for highly-rated left-back Alberto Moreno.
