Aston Villa boss David O'Leary believes his side have a realistic chance of qualifying for the Uefa Cup next term.
"We have a chance to improve the squad," said O'Leary after the 2-1 defeat to Liverpool at Anfield.
"I've given the chairman a list of players that are gettable. If we do we will have a chance of challenging the likes of Spurs for a Uefa Cup place.
"If we're going to improve we have to have better players - I hope to bring in four players to strengthen my team."
