Colin Pascoe insists that Liverpool are constantly working behind the scenes to bring the right players to Anfield – but wouldn’t be drawn on specific targets.

The Reds have been linked with a host of names in recent weeks, including FC Basel winger Mohamed Salah and Chelsea playmaker Juan Mata.

And with the January transfer window now open, assistant manager Pascoe revealed that the club’s recruitment strategy is an ongoing process.

“The scouts and everyone behind the scenes are looking at players, which players to bring into Liverpool Football Club,” Pascoe told a news conference on Friday.

“It’s always ongoing, not just in January or in the summer. It’s always ongoing. We’ll be looking at different players and I’m sure there are targets, if we want or need them, to bring in.

“You get your targets, whatever you want, you go out and assess certain things – nothing changes.

“At any club, you will get injuries. Unfortunately for us, we had one or two close together. But all the targets we are looking for will still remain the same.”

Pascoe also laughed off suggestions that Raheem Sterling could leave Anfield on loan this month after he was linked with a move to Swansea City.

“We just laughed at that really,” Pascoe added. “Raheem has been brilliant this season – he won’t be going anywhere.”
