Liverpool transfers: Rodgers doesn’t expect wholesale changes in January
Liverpool transfers: Brendan Rodgers says the Reds will not make "wholesale changes" in the January transfer window
Brendan Rodgers has revealed that Liverpool will not make “wholesale changes” in the January transfer window, although the Reds boss hopes to strengthen his striking options.
The 39-year-old has been forced to rely on Uruguay international Luis Suárez this term, with the former Ajax man currently the leading goal scorer in the Premier League with 10 strikes.
Italy international Fabio Borini is injured with a broken foot, while Andy Carroll appears set to remain on loan at West Ham United for the remainder of the campaign.
Rodgers has been linked with a move for Schalke’s Klaas-Jan Huntelaar in recent weeks, but the former Swansea boss urged the Reds supporters to be patient as the club looks to build over the coming seasons.
“We’re looking to do business in the striking department in January,” Rodgers told talkSPORT.
“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.
“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.
“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.”
