Anfield manager may not be set to spend big sums this month.
A decent run of recent results appears to have led Brendan Rodgers to be less concerned about making January signings with reports from talkSPORT suggesting the Anfield side are set for a ‘quiet’ transfer window.

A run of four wins in five Premier League fixtures, and perhaps most encouragingly back to back clean sheets from fixtures against Sunderland and Aston Villa, have moved Liverpool back to within touching distance of that all important top four finish.
Rodgers spent over £100m on new additions last summer and when asked about how what sort of transfer window the Northern Irishman would predict for January, the Liverpool manager stated;
“It will be quiet,”
“I’ve said before we wouldn’t be doing much over the course of January.
“There are players who are linked with Liverpool all the time. That may be agents looking to get their player a move. For us, it will be pretty quiet.”
This news may dismay fans of the Merseyside outfit who were perhaps hopeful that a player or two may have been drafted in this month.
Liverpool haven’t been anywhere near as effective in the final third this term as they were last season and though both Rickie Lambert and Fabio Borini netted in Saturday’s win at Aston Villa it’s clear that Rodgers’ side is struggling for an end product.
Rodgers will hope to have England man Daniel Sturridge to call upon to resolve that predicament, having been without the Liverpool hot-shot for almost the entire season.
