Rafa hints at January arrivals

Rafael Benitez has revealed he is hoping to add to his squad in the transfer window following reports linking Liverpool with a move for Maxi Rodriquez.

Benitez is remaining tight-lipped on possible names, but the Atletico Madrid and Argentina international midfielder has been a long-term target of the Anfield boss.

The 28-year-old is currently out of favour at the Spanish club despite being a regular for his national team.

"We are working hard and trying to do our jobs, and we'll see if we can do something," Benitez told the club's official website.

"We are looking in the market but it's not easy to find good players available because the majority of them are playing in top sides. But we are trying to find solutions if we can.

"We have some good players who people are interested in because they're not playing too many games, but we have to manage carefully."
