Former Liverpool striker Michael Owen believes that despite their recent improvements, Brendan Rodgers' side require some world-class signings to make them a driving force once again.

The ex-Real Madrid and Newcastle United star scored around 120 goals in over 200 appearances for the Anfield outfit, winning the treble of the FA Cup, League Cup and the UEFA Cup (now the Europa League) during his time at the club.

Owen tweeted: "I see much more in Liverpool to be optimistic about than I did 3 months ago. A couple of quality additions in the summer could do the trick."

The Reds have not been the wisest with their money, having spent £35m on former Newcastle striker Andy Carroll, whilst also spending around £20m each on flops Stewart Downing and Jordan Henderson.

However, one signing of former manager Kenny Dalglish that has been essential in Liverpool’s recent form is £22.7m striker Luis Suarez.

The 26-year-old Uruguayan has netted 22 goals for Liverpool so far this season, with 17 in league, placing him just two behind top league scorer Robin van Persie.

After a 3-1 defeat to West Bromwich Albion on Monday night, Liverpool sit in 9th place having struggled for consistency this season.

However, they remain just six points behind Merseyside rivals Everton, pushing for a Europa League place next season with 12 games to go.
