Rodgers not banking on January sales

Published Add your comment

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers admits it will not be easy to find players to sign in the January transfer window despite having funds to strengthen his squad.

The Red boss brushed aside speculation linking him with a move for Arsenal forward Theo Walcott, who is out of contract next summer. And while much has been made of a suggested clear-out of the high-earning, out-of-favour stars like Joe Cole and Stewart Downing, the Northern Irishman conceded his primary focus was on strengthening his squad.

"There is nothing to say (about Walcott). He is an Arsenal player and it is all speculation about many players at the moment," said Rodgers. "We'll have funds and I'm in talks with the owners at the moment, along with our recruitment team. January is always a difficult window. You don't get too many top, top players."
