Quiet window expected for Liverpool…
Manager Brendan Rodgers doesn’t think we’ll be doing too much business in the January transfer window, despite constant links to potential new signings.
“It will be quiet,” he told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast. “I’ve said before we wouldn’t be doing much over the course of January.
“There are players who are linked with Liverpool all the time. That may be agents looking to get their player a move. For us, it will be pretty quiet.”
Before our recent run of good form, fans were crying out for us to sign a centre-forward and a goalkeeper this month, but Rodgers has now led us to six wins in our past eight fixtures in all competitions, and we’ve actually only lost once in 14.
With Fabio Borini and Rickie Lambert scoring at the weekend, and Daniel Sturridge closing in on a return from injury, our striking options seem a little more promising… In goal, oft criticised Simon Mignolet has kept consecutive clean-sheets, and was singled out for particular praise by the boss following the victory over Aston Villa.
Arguably Rodgers’ best ever signings as Liverpool boss came in January, when he secured Daniel Sturridge and Coutinho for a combined fee of around £23m in 2013, but it doesn’t seem like we’ll be making any similarly excellent purchases this time around.
With Joe Allen and Jon Flanagan also closing on returns from injury, our squad looks decent for the second half of the season push.
We next play Chelsea at Anfield on Tuesday in the League Cup, and although our opponents are probably the best side in the country, confidence will be high.
