Liverpool just acquired two big pieces in Chelsea striker Daniel Sturridge and Blackpool winger Tom Ince, but the best is yet to come for the club. Manager Brendan Rodgers promises to save his biggest moves for the summer according to a Daily Mail report. 

The additions of Sturridge and Ince already add plenty of extra attacking prowess, but Rodgers wants to focus on consistency this summer.

On the other side of the coin, Rodgers urges patience for a club that is firmly in the middle of the pack in the English Premier League. He points to a lack of free money as cause for restraint for this transfer window, but he promises this won't be a problem in the future.

That's because this summer, Liverpool will be the beneficiaries of a new television deal that should free up money for a big addition. This, paired with Rodgers' perception of Liverpool's various needs, should guarantee a Liverpool club that is extremely active this summer.

Despite the club's problems, there is already plenty of optimism for Liverpool. Sturridge and Ince should both play major roles in boosting an average attack that has scored a middling 28 goals this season. 

Ince has been excellent with 13 goals for Blackpool this season, while Sturridge should improve with more time on the pitch with Liverpool. Both are young players with plenty of potential.

With Rodgers' commitment to excellence, Liverpool supporters should be confident that their club is on the right path. Rodgers has already set a trend of austerity for Liverpool, firmly setting aside the club's past spending sprees.

With more cash on hand this summer, though, Rodgers seems set to finally make the high-profile transfers necessary to bring Liverpool back to championship level. Rodgers' eye for bargains and commitment to consistent excellence should truly start to produce results next season.

Assuming the summer goes as planned, Liverpool supporters have plenty to be excited about in the future.
