Kenny Dalglish believes Liverpool would benefit from a 'headline' signing this winter - and they have the funds to make one.
The Reds have been linked with a whole host of potential targets during the transfer window and are expected to bring some fresh blood to Anfield before the end of January.
Liverpool currently find themselves at the wrong end of the Barclays Premier League and are in desperate need for attacking reinforcements; something they have only too readily admitted.
The acquisition of a marquee signing this month - such as Ajax striker Luis Suarez - would go some way to proving that Liverpool owners New England Sports Ventures mean business, as well as allaying fears that the Reds may slide further down the table.
And interim Liverpool boss Dalglish says a big-money signing would boost him, the players and the Liverpool fans alike.
"If we get a few players in, the first one might not be the headline signing. It might be something we need to help support the squad. Everyone would love to see someone brought in who is really going to whet the appetite and we will try our best to do that," the Liverpool legend told The Guardian.
"Everybody wants to see fresh faces at the football club, whether you are a player, manager, owner or supporter. If they can help us, we will do our best to get them in but we are not going to bring someone in just to say we have got a signing."
Dalglish also explained that he had held transfer discussions with Liverpool owner John Henry and chairman Tom Werner, who are willing to invest heavily in the playing squad.
"I had a positive meeting with Tom and John yesterday. There is no problem with transfers as long as we are responsible."
