Brendan Rodgers rules out wholesale changes in January
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has ruled out the possibility of making wholesale changes to his squad during the January transfer window.
It has been thought that the Northern Irishman may look to bring in a number of new faces during the winter in a bid to improve the Reds’ Premier League performances.
However, Rodgers confessed that he is unlikely to make multiple transfers, despite worries surrounding the depth of his Anfield squad:
“The reality is that there was always going to be a bit of movement this season with the club trying to regain some of their money. This season was always going to be difficult.” He is quoted by SkySports.
“We’ll look to do something in the January transfer window, though. There’s not going to be wholesale changes in terms of players coming in, that’s the reality of where the club is at.
With the departure of Andy Carroll during the summer, and the recent injury suffered by Fabio Borini, Rodgers has only Luis Suarez to call upon in a central attacking role.
Due to this, he claimed that he’ll be searching for alternatives during the next transfer window:
“We’re looking to do business in the striking department in January,
“We’re looking to grow over the next six months, we’ll get some reinforcements in January and that will support the group who have been magnificent for me so far.
“Hopefully in the summer we can build again.”
