Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard is excited about the quality and timing of the club's new signings.

The Reds have announced four new aquisitions already this summer, with Kolo Toure, Luis Alberto, Iago Aspas and Simon Mignolet all agreeing to move to Anfield.

Gerrard feels that the fans should be pleased with the early business and hopes that they can push them to secure Champions League football next season.

He told the club's official televsion channel: "Especially with the news of us making a few signings, I'm really looking forward to getting started.

"It's always important to get faces in as soon as possible; they can get a full pre-season under their belt, get to know the lads and how the manager wants to play.

"There are some exciting names in there so everyone is excited."

The skipper admits that he does not know much about the new Spanish pair but has faith in the club's scouting system.

"I know very little about them but I have got a lot belief and confidence in Brendan [Rodgers] and the scouting department that they are going to make the right decisions and I have seen bits and bobs of new signings we have made," he remarked.

"I am really looking forward to getting back to work next week and seeing what the new players have got to offer and see if they can help strengthen our squad to put in a better fight for a top-four finish."
