Money in place for Reds to make 'world-class' buy, claims Comolli

Liverpool's new director of football strategy, Damien Comolli, claims owners New England Sports Ventures are prepared to finance the signing of a world-class player in January, but only if the price is right.

"We have a pretty good idea of what we would like to do and we have identified targets," Comolli said when asked about manager Roy Hodgson's plans for the transfer window. "If there's a possibility of us getting a world-class player, we will have the backing.

"If it can be done in January, great. If it can't because we feel it is the wrong market or players are overpriced, we will wait."
