After being not at the best in the first half of the season, the Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has said that he would like to bring in a few players before the close of the January transfer window in order to strengthen the team. Liverpool have already brought in the Chelsea striker Daniel Sturridge for a fee believed to be in the region of £ 12 million. They are currently in negotiations with the Italian club Inter Milan over the possibility of signing the Brazilian midfielder Coutinho. The Welsh captain Ashley Williams has also been spoken of as a transfer target for Liverpool.

Rogers has confirmed that the club are indeed negotiating with several parties, and are hoping to announce a new deal for a player before the end of the transfer window. He has praised the way Sturridge has made an impact at the club immediately after arriving. The former Chelsea and Manchester City striker has formed a great partnership with Luis Suarez. He has said that £ 12 million for a player like Daniel Sturridge might prove to be a great bargain a few years down the line. However, he thinks that the squad will be complete only if they bring in a couple of players before the end of the transfer window.

“We hope to do some business between now and the end of the month. The owners have been brilliant in supporting (me), we knew we were maybe a little bit short in the summer. We all agreed this was a month we would try to reinforce, if we could. Very quickly we got Daniel Sturridge in and he has made a big impact, proving the owners were right to fund the money for him,” said Rodgers, whose team sit just above the 10th position in the table.
