Rodgers hopeful of January signings

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has outlined his optimism that he will be allowed to bolster his side in the January transfer window.

Rodgers was left frustrated in the summer after on transfer deadline day Andy Carroll was loaned out to West Ham United with no replacement brought in for the striker.

The Reds have this week been dealt a blow with the news that Fabio Borini suffered a broken foot on international duty, leaving Rodgers with Luis Suarez as his only recognised senior striker available.

Rodgers, though, has claimed that recent discussions with the club's owners, Fenway Sports Group, have been positive and that there was common ground found over potential deals in the winter transfer window.

"There are still areas we want to reinforce - and we have to reinforce as soon as we can," Rodgers is quoted as saying in the Mail on Sunday.

"Our best team are comparable to any team in the Premier League. But we're a very thin squad and we are having to challenge on a lot of fronts.

"I've had good conversations with the owners and they understand where we are at as a team."
