All smiles: Rodgers will be delighted with his business in the summer transfer window

The window finally closed for the year on Monday night, and, after what has been an extremely busy close-season recruitment drive, Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers will be especially contented with the players he has managed to bring in to Anfield.

The Northern Irishman, who had to deal with the long-running Luis Suarez transfer saga throughout the summer as well, has seen eight new arrivals on Merseyside since the end of the previous campaign in a variety of different positions, at a total cost of £51.2 million.

And there have also been a number of departures from the Reds, either permanently or on loan, bringing £28.7m back into the club’s coffers, making it a net spend of just £22.5m by Rodgers.

However, are Liverpool a stronger-looking outfit that is better prepared to make a push for the top four in the Premier League now that the window has shut and the club has concluded its transfer activity?

Or are there still areas of the team that need strengthening and which Rodgers failed to address this summer?

Well, I will assess each of the new recruits and give our verdict on just how well the Reds have fared in the transfer window.
