Liverpool's recent run of form has lifted them into the top half of the Premier League table. This has given Brendan Rodgers and his team plenty of hope that the club will be in a relatively strong domestic position as the Reds head into the January transfer window and the chance to strengthen presents itself.
Despite bringing in two attackers in the summer—Fabio Borini and Oussama Assaidi—Rodgers saw a net loss to his squad in the final third, as the likes of Maxi Rodriguez, Dirk Kuyt and Craig Bellamy all departed for good, and Andy Carroll went out on loan.
Rodgers, the Reds manager, will be anxious to bring in one or two further faces in the new year—and with good reason.
Liverpool have seen improving performances on the pitch recently, the team are beginning to dominate games with more frequency and plenty of goal-scoring chances are being created—but the Reds need more final-third quality to turn those chances into Premier League points.
Here is why Liverpool need to add more attacking talent when they move into January.
