Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has confessed that the club are likely to delve into the transfer market at the end of the season.
The Reds were linked with multiple players last month, but ultimately ended the window empty handed.
Mohamed Salah was their top target, but a reluctance to match FC Basel’s valuation saw them lose out to Chelsea in the battle for the Egyptian ace.
They then switched their attention to Yevhen Konoplynaka, only to see a deadline day swoop thwarted by an inability to get the move processed in time.
Although Rodgers says that he is happy with his current crop, the Northern Irishman feels that reinforcement is needed:
“I think we’ll need to strengthen the overall squad and looking to obviously introduce more quality, but it’s only natural,” he told Sky Sports.
“The players have been brilliant this season in terms of what they’ve produced, with what we have, and we just look to continue to develop the squad and I think when we do that then we can be there (in the title race).”
A return move for Konoplyanka is expected, with Dnipro having confessed that they “1000%” expect a fresh offer from Liverpool, while Rubin Kazan midfielder Yann M’Vila is also a target.
