As the January transfer window approaches us yet again, speculation has started mounting throughout the football world. Liverpool have one of the thinnest squads, with only Luis Suarez as a senior striker carrying the charge up front in the absence of the injured Fabio Borini and Andy Carroll, who was loaned out to West Ham.

It is still unclear as to what amount will Brendan Rodgers be given to strengthen his battered troops this January.
