Brazil international Lucas Leiva is targeting a return to the UEFA Champions League with Liverpool.
The Anfield club dropped out of the Premier League's top four last season to mean they would not qualify for the European Cup and the best they can hope for going into the final fixture of the current campaign is fifth spot.
But Liverpool are expected to continue the improvement which has been shown since Kenny Dalglish returned as manager in January and the Scot signed a new three-year contract earlier in May.
Fenway Sports Group, Liverpool's owners, are also reported to be prepared to spend £50million this summer to improve the playing squad and Lucas hopes that any investment could put the club back among the continent's heavyweights.
He told Sky Sports News: "We want to get back into the Champions League because it is where Liverpool belong. We will do everything we can.
"We can see the owners and everyone involved is trying to strengthen the squad. They are working really hard to make a good team, so hopefully next season will be a good season for Liverpool."
Lucas has been among Liverpool's best players in what has been a difficult past 18 months and he hopes to continue to prove a valuable contributor at Anfield.
"My plan is, of course, to play for Liverpool, win trophies and be a key player for the team," he said.
"Hopefully I will achieve my individual targets and then do really well with the team as well."
