Brendan Rodgers has suggested he may look to add to his squad with some technical quality this January.

Liverpool have made a strong start to the Premier League campaign and are currently fourth in the league.

But Rodgers may look to buy in January and he has revealed the type of player which would attract his attention.

"I think my history as a coach shows I like players who are gifted technically and have courage when it comes to being in possession of a football," he told Bleacher Report."

"That is a key quality for me; can you be brave on the pitch, not in terms of 50-50 tackles but having the ball and looking to play in areas others wouldn’t?

"I would say you can’t divorce the two – ability and personality,

"It all comes as part of the package. A player’s character is a crucial factor I look into before committing to signing them.

"They also need to show a willingness to learn, regardless of age and experience; that’s very important to me."

Rodgers has shown with the signing of Philippe Coutinho from Inter Milan just the type of player he is looking for. The Brazilian has been a revelation at the club since arriving last January.

However, Liverpool fans would be less impressed with another Iago Aspas or Fabio Borini, who have the technical quality, but have not been so successful at Anfield.
