Bony signs from Swansea City on a deal until 2019.
The Liverpool manager has a big task in the summer with the Reds losing big characters of Jamie Carragher, Luis Suarez and Steven Gerrard over the course of three seasons.
Games against Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester United and Crystal Palace feature.
The deal for the forward will be completed on January 1 when the transfer window opens.
Aldridge likes that Rodgers has made changes to the team and the style in a bid to get their season back on track - but feels another forward should be brought in as soon as possible.
Changes all over the pitch, a depleted strike force and a huge learning curve was always going to throw up difficulties, but the Reds aren't too badly placed.
Ed Woodward has often been criticised for not helping the manager sign players, but Paul Scholes has praise for the executive vice-chairman.
Barcelona will be banned from signing players in January 2015 and the following summer.
