Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish says the Reds 'have the option' to reinforce during January, but would not comment on any specific targets.

With the opening of the transfer window fast approaching, speculation is rife that the Barclays Premier League's leading lights will enter the winter market.

Liverpool, in particular, have been linked with numerous players following the injury to Lucas Leiva and the ongoing absence of captain Steven Gerrard.

The likes of Barcelona's Seydou Keita and Argentine Lucas Biglia have been touted as potential January acquisitions, as have Lassana Diarra and Leroy Fer.

But Dalglish is not in the business to pass comment on possible targets, although he did admit that some new faces could arrive at Anfield next month.

"We don't speculate on anybody - either our own players or somebody else's players," said the Reds manager.

"It doesn't matter what we say, there is going to be speculation in the newspapers - but we won't be here to answer every question that's in newspapers.

"We'll do our business the way we've been brought up to do our business, and that's privately behind closed doors.

"We have the option to add if we want to, but we also have another option that we don't have to."
