Transfer news: Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers eyes January signings
Reds boss keen to make additions despite strong start to the season
Despite making their best start in the Premier League for four years, and with the return of Luis Suarez being hailed as “like a new signing”, Liverpool are planning to further invest in the squad in January.
Speaking after the 3-1 victory over Sunderland which saw them go second in the Premier League with 13 points from their opening six fixtures, Brendan Rodgers confirmed that the club intend to spend when the transfer window re-opens.
"Now we can only concentrate on the league up until Christmas," Rodgers said.
"So we have to make sure we stay up in that top six in the league and keep fighting and hopefully we can reinforce in January."
Rodgers has already been well backed in the transfer market by the club's American owners, bringing in Daniel Sturridge and Philippe Coutinho last January and then Mamadou Sakho, Tiago Llori, Simon Mognolet, Iago Aspas and Luis Alberto for sizeable fees this summer.
Despite wanting to strengthen, the Liverpool manager appears happy with the quality already at his disposal.
"We have got a very good side. I think we showed that in the games we have played so far.
"For example the games against Manchester United, not only in the cup but also in the league – against a top team we showed that we are capable of harm and making sure we win those games."
