Brendan Rodgers hoping for more transfer business
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers is still looking to add to his squad during the January transfer window.
The Reds’ only arrival this month has been Daniel Sturridge from Chelsea, who signed within days of the window opening.
With his team currently some way off of the top four, Rodgers has admitted that he may need to delve into the market once more, as injuries have revealed a lack of depth in his squad:
“We’ll see what happens over the course of the next few weeks.” He told the club’s official website.
“Daniel was our main priority and we’ll have to see what else is available.
“There’s no doubt we need to support the group. We had 20 players training this morning, of which some of those are our younger players, so we know we need to reinforce and top up the group. That’s something we’ll look to do.
“If we can do it then great and if not, then we’ll wait until the summer.”
One player to have been linked with a switch to Anfield is Inter Milan playmaker Wesley Sneijder.
The Dutchman is believed to be close to joining Galatasaray, but there are rumours that he is holding out for a move to the Premier League.
But, Rodgers has ruled out a move for the 28-year-old, who is said to be earning £200,000-per-week:
“You could probably rattle off about 20 names and the answer would be the same. The club have been linked with a whole host of players, but I couldn’t see that happening.”
Liverpool have also been linked with Tom Ince, Victor Valdes and David Villa in recent weeks.
