The Northern Irishman admits he would like to bring more new faces to Anfield in the winter window but believes he will have to make do with what he has until the summer
Brendan Rodgers has confirmed Liverpool are unlikely to make any new signings in January but insists contract talks with star man Raheem Sterling are progressing well.
Liverpool splashed out over €120 million on eight players in the summer in a bid to rebuild their squad in the wake of Luis Suarez’s €88m switch to Barcelona.
And while Rodgers admits he would like to bring more new faces to Anfield in the winter window, he believes he will most likely have to make do with what he has until the end of the season.
“If we get a positive result on Saturday [against West Ham] that’ll put us in a great position [to challenge for the Premier League’s top four],” the Liverpool boss told reporters.
“Every manager will always want more signings… I would want to be able to do one or two things.
“But I always said the likelihood was we wouldn’t sign anyone in January and it looks like that is going to be the case.”
But Rodgers was significantly more upbeat on the future of Sterling, who is currently in talks with Liverpool over a new long-term contract that will reportedly make him one of the highest earners at Anfield.
“It’s all in hand with his representatives,” the northern Irishman added. “He’s happy and sees his long-term future here. He’s a real sponge for learning.”
