‘The challenge for us is to equalise. We’ve got to make sure we’ve got a squad capable of competing with United,’ Gerrard said.

'It’s a big statement getting a big signing in early and now we’re watching anxiously for a few more to follow. It’s exciting times.’

The Jordan Henderson arrival summer transfer rumors involving Blackpool’s Charlie Adam, Southampton’s Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Ipswich striker Connor Wickham could be hopeful signs. 

"As a Liverpool fan and a player it's frustrating when you see your arch-rivals lifting trophies but you've got to give credit where it's due. They've won it, they've overtaken us," he said.

"I want to come back with a bang, I want to have a big season. It's been non-stop football for me since I started when I was 17. I've never had a period of more than four or five weeks out of the game, so it's been nice to rest mentally.

"You don't want to miss games but when you're watching them it gives you that edge, that buzz to get back. I'll come back hungry and hopefully there's a very productive season ahead for me. I've had a rest mentally, my injury's coming on well and I can't wait for the season to start."

Man United and Aston Villa are also believed to be in the hunt for Charlie Adam. 

Speaking of Manchester United, that club has reportedly lost its bid for Lens defender Raphael Varane, who is likely complete a £9million move to Real Madrid.
