Liverpool’s record-breaking kit deal with New Balance will allow the club to sign Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema and Borussia Dortmund duo Marco Reus and Henrikh Mkhitaryan in the summer, according to the Daily Star.

The deal with the American sportsewear brand is predicted to earn the Reds £300million over six years, and means they can avoid the perils of Financial Fair Play and make some serious investments.

France striker Benzema has previously been linked with a £50million switch to Anfield, whilst the sales of Mario Balotelli, Rickie Lambert and Fabio Borini will contribute towards the fee.

Marco Reus and Mkhitaryan are both long term targets, with the latter set to leave struggling Dortmund in the summer according to the players agent.

Mino Raiola, said: “Henrikh wants to leave Dortmund at the end of the season. We will have to wait and see what we can do.”

Reus meanwhile is set to see his well documented £20million buy-out-clause become active at the end of the season.

These signings may well depend on whether the Reds manage Champions League qualification however, with Brendan Rodgers men currently sitting four points outside the top four in seventh place.

    Why not use that money to expand Anfield even further? Expand the KOP so that it can take 25000 fans. I think that is what we should do. Players will be here for a few years but Anfield for decades or centuries!
