With one day of the January transfer window left to go, Liverpool are yet to bring in any new faces. But with players still being linked left, right and centre, there could yet be some last-minute business at Anfield.
Back in November, Brendan Rodgers filled Reds fans with hope when he revealed his plans to make upgrades to his starting XI, rather than buy more squad players.
"We need to bring in players for the team," he was quoted by Andy Hunter of the Guardian as saying. He added:
We've got a squad and we've got enough cover but in the future the focus is on bringing in players that can come straight in and improve our team. We did that last year and benefited from that. We know what we need to improve and we know the areas we need to improve but it's all about timing and all about affordability and can we do it? I always hope that in each window we can improve the team and if we can do that we can rightly be up there.
Yet with the clock ticking, and having already lost out to Chelsea for Egyptian international winger Mohamed Salah, Rodgers and Liverpool face a race against time.
The rumour mill is in full flow though and there could still be some transfer deadline day action involving the Reds.
