The Liverpool legend is looking to add quality players in that department, and he hopes to bring at least three centre halves over the coming weeks.
One of the players who is expected to arrive is Brighton defender Connor Goldson. The report claims that he could be the first arrival after Gerrard sanctioned two bids for the 25-year-old.
Brighton are demanding a fee in the region of £3 million, and as of now, the Gers are yet to meet that asking price.
Last week, reports emerged that Rangers are ready to submit a third offer for the player who is keen on the move to the Ibrox club. It is expected that the player will move to Rangers once the fee is agreed.
