Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has already asked fans not expect a lot of transfer activity during the January transfer window, even though his squad is short-handed on strikers. Due to the shortage of transfer funds Brendan Rodgers will be making a couple of loan signings instead of permanent transfer moves.
In an interview to talkSport this week the former Swansea City manager told reporters that he was looking to bring in quality players to Liverpool although there was a shortage of money at Anfield.
Liverpool has been linked to a long list of talented strikers since the summer transfer window. The list includes Darren Bent from Aston Villa, Daniel Sturridge from Chelsea, Theo Walcott from Arsenal and Klaas-Jan Huntelaar from Schalke.
Brendan Rodgers insists that he will try to bring in such quality players on loan if Liverpool isn’t able to make permanent transfer moves for them. Presently, Liverpool have only strikers in their squad, Luis Suarez.
The 25-year-old Uruguay international has been in phenomenal form for Liverpool having scored 13 goals and assisted six times in 19 appearances this season.
“The squad has been ultra-thin right the way through. There will be some money available. There have been a million names linked to the club and the brutal honesty of it is that 99% of those we haven't been thinking about. But there will be a bit of money to spend and hopefully we can get one or two loans in, if that's possible, to reinforce the group,” the 39-year-old manager told talkSport.
Liverpool are on the road to recovery after an awful start to the season in the English Premier League. The Reds are 11th on the league table because of an eight-match unbeaten run.
Brendan Rodgers believes his men have made a lot of progress since their worst start to a league season in nearly a century. Brendan Rodgers further stated that Liverpool still had a good chance of capturing a Champions League spot this season.
“I think we are on the up and improving all the time. It was obviously very difficult at the beginning with tough games and trying to implement new ideas. It's difficult when you are playing against some of the big sides and established sides... the application of the players has been outstanding. They have been superb in terms of wanting to learn, wanting to improve and wanting to work,” Brendan Rodgers said.
