Liverpool transfers: Brendan Rodgers happy to stick with current options
Brendan Rodgers says Liverpool won't be active this month unless 'something dramatic happens'
Brendan Rodgers says he isn’t anticipating any new arrivals in the January transfer window unless “something dramatic happens” in the next week.
The Reds haven’t made any signings so far this month despite their disappointing Premier League campaign, leaving last year’s runners-up in eighth place.
Liverpool were reported to be targeting Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette, although the France international picked up a thigh injury over the weekend.
However, Rodgers, whose side face Chelsea on Tuesday night, reiterated that he doesn’t expect the Merseyside outfit to delve into the January market.
“I don’t think so. Unless something dramatic happens we will go with what we have,” Rodgers told his pre-match media conference on Monday.
Liverpool played out a goalless draw with Championship side Bolton Wanderers at Anfield in the FA Cup fourth round on Saturday.
Trotter shot stopper Adam Bogdan was particularly impressive as the 27-year-old made a staggering nine saves to deny the Premier League side.
Reports in the British media suggested Rodgers was weighing up a move for the Bolton goalkeeper.
Speaking at his press conference this morning, the Liverpool manager insisted there was “nothing at all” in the speculation.
