"You have to make steps and the step is for us to be around the best teams in the world because we are in one of the best clubs in the world".

Arsenal will be under pressure to win the trophy at the end of a season in which they have failed to qualify for the Champions League by finishing fourth or higher in the Premier League.

Well, Reds manager Jurgen Klopp is understood to have made RB Leipzig midfielder Naby Keita and Southampton defender Virgil van Dijk is priority additions, but they certainly won't come on the cheap.

"They were spectacular when I went to them growing up as a kid with the flags and scarves". We are professional and a part of that is to perform when the environment is not positive.

It is clear that Gerrard and Klopp have a strong relationship, with the Reds manager nearly acting as a mentor to the incoming U18s coach. "That's what he gives players", he said. We now have to find a way of competing on up to four fronts, but Klopp will be more than aware from his days at Borussia Dortmund that Liverpool will need to strengthen, both in terms in quantity and quality, this summer.

Speaking to the Liverpool Echo about potential signings under Klopp this summer, former Liverpool captain Gerrard backed the manager to secure some good additions.

"We're in the qualifying stage but you've got to realise that to get to the latter stages of the competition you are talking about top, top class opposition. It's important that we keep trying to move forward".

"The next three, four, five, six years, whatever it turns out to be, are going to be very exciting and players will want to be a part of what Jürgen is doing", Gerrard said, when asked to put the Klopp je ne sais quoi into words. For me, it's such an exciting project.
