Rodgers assured of January transfer kitty by Liverpool board

A January transfer war chest will be made available to Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers, the Liverpool Echo has reported, in an effort to plug the gaps left in the Reds’ squad from the summer market.

In particular, the team’s attacking options are in need of strengthening after England international Andy Carroll was allowed to leave Anfield on loan for West Ham United without a move for a replacement forward at an advanced stage. As it was, Liverpool’s attempt to sign Clint Dempsey from Fulham collapsed and the United States attacker joined Tottenham Hotspur instead.

Liverpool’s problems in attack have been compounded by the loss of Fabio Borini for three months with a fractured foot, leaving Luis Suarez as Rodgers’ only fit and ready senior striker.

The manager admitted that when the transfer window opens again on January 1 it will be in the forward ranks that he looks to draft in new faces. Vowing not to repeat the mistakes made over the summer, Rodgers added: “The summer was a real learning experience here for everyone. Everyone sees that we need to add that goal threat to the team. It will always be the case that I’ll be able to bring in the players of my choice. Obviously there’ll be money available to do that in January.
