The Reds spent £107m in the summer to little effect.
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers will only be bringing loan signing to Anfield in the January transfer window, report the Mirror, despite the fact that the Reds are struggling this season and looking in desperate need of fresh blood and ideas once the transfer window reopens.
The sale of Luis Suarez contributed to much of the Reds’ summer transfer kitty, but the loss of the Uruguayan’s creativity and selfless endeavour has been evident, with a number of Rodgers’ expensive buys having failed to step up to the mark – particularly the likes of Lazar Markovic and Mario Balotelli in attacking areas.
If this report is to be believed, it would seem that Rodgers will not be trusted with another large lump sum in a winter market that is notorious for its lack of value, with the former Reading and Swansea City manager instead set to be asked to find bargains in the market that can be brought in on loan, potentially with a view to permanent deals in the summer.
One player that the report earmarks as being a possibility for this course of action is Inter Milan and Colombia midfielder Fredy Guarin, who could be available having been largely on the periphery of things at the San Siro so far this campaign.
