Anfield boss keen to spend.
Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is looking to bring in one or two more signings before the January transfer window slams shut according to Sky Sports.

The Anfield boss has already seen Daniel Sturridge net three goals in three games since he moved to the Merseyside club early in the window but is hopeful of further additions.
Rodgers stated; “We hope to do some business between now and the end of the month. The owners have been brilliant and supporting,” said Rodgers.
“We know we still need one or two additions more. The club is doing everything it possible can to assist me in that. If we can, great. If not, we’ll have to review it again in the summer.
“We’ve got a young player who’ll go out on loan to get some experience but apart from that I don’t expect people [to go]. One or two, maybe, to come in.”
“The real plans are for now. Short term we want to improve and develop. You can see that, we brought in Daniel and he’s been excellent so far.
“We got the recruitment team in, the lines are very clear, everyone has an understanding of where we’re at and it’s working how we envisaged it to work.
“There is a small group who communicate a lot and go through targets, and there is a small group who’ll decide what players we’re going to bring in. It’s worked very, very well, and that relationship will only get better going forward.
“We acted quickly bringing Daniel Sturridge in and he’s made a great impact, and proven that the owners were right to fund the money for him. £12 million for a player like Daniel Sturridge is a real bargain and I think he’ll prove that over the next couple of seasons.”
This source states that Blackpool’s Tom Ince and Inter Milan playmaker Philippe Coutinho are Rodgers’ chief targets and the addition of the duo would certainly adhere to the club’s youthful transfer policy.
Championship side Blackpool are thought to be asking for a lot more than Liverpool are ready to offer for Ince whilst Inter Milan are also said to have attracted a bid from Southampton for Brazilian Coutinho.
