The Reds boss has made no secret of his desire to strengthen his stretched squad this month as the 18-time English champions look to cement their top-four bid.
It all boils down to the availability of the players
Rodgers was widely lauded in January 2013 following the success of Philippe Coutinho and Daniel Sturridge, who the Northern Irishman signed 12 months ago.
The 40-year-old insisted Liverpool are prepared for the current window but won’t spend unless they can sign the right type of player.
“I’ll be confident over the next few windows,” Rodgers is quoted as saying by the Liverpool Echo.
“You saw last January we were fully prepared for what we needed and we got that business done early.
“We are fully prepared this time also. A lot of great work has gone in to prepare for this January window but it all boils down to the availability of the players.
“Where we’re at this January as opposed to last January is that the team has evolved and grown and developed. It’s a different team to what it was last January.
“Now there is greater demand on the types of players that we want to bring in.
“They have to be available first and foremost. If the right player is available not just for now but for the future we will look to do that.
“If not we may have to go with what we’ve got for the rest of this season and reassess in the summer.”
