Liverpool can count themselves relatively satisfied with a January transfer window in which they allowed two seniors to depart, brought in two to replace them and saw a variety of youngsters depart on loan for further experience.
While the loan of Nuri Sahin came to a disappointing early conclusion, the exit of Joe Cole was the best move for all parties and was perhaps long overdue.
New arrival Daniel Sturridge has already proven his worth with four goals in a month, while fellow new signing Philippe Coutinho brings immense promise of little actual consistency in the end product thus far.
These latest recruits are still only a small part of the restructuring of the senior side that manager Brendan Rodgers will want to undertake; his most important transfer window of all will open up at the end of the present season.
Three transfer windows was always likely to be the required time for the boss to reshape the team in his own image, having had a season to assess which regular first-team players might have to be moved on to accommodate improvements.
Here are some of the main targets, or in some cases positions of the team, that Rodgers will be looking at improving over the summer.
