Rodgers hints at January striker swoop
Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has indicated he is keen to secure another striker in the January transfer window.
Liverpool have managed just nine goals in seven Premier League games to date, five of which came in a single game at Norwich. Rodgers allowed striker Andy Carroll to depart on loan in the summer and failed to bring in a replacement and the Reds boss is short of options in attack. Luis Suarez and youngsters Fabio Borini and Daniel Pacheco are Rodgers' only real options and the Liverpool boss has indicated he is planning to add a striker to his side in the January transfer window. Rodgers insists Liverpool will stick to their principles and seek to pass the ball, rather than opt for the long ball, even in the closing stages of games and indicated he is keen to bring in a striker who will fit their style. "In my career, I've won a number of games, especially against big teams, by continuing to play and waiting for those moments at the end of the game," he is quoted as saying in the Liverpool Echo. "I don't really do the desperation one where it becomes a war in the last 10 minutes of the game by taking it longer. "We work with what we've got, look to find different ways and solutions to score, and then when January comes we'll see if we can re-visit that."
