Liverpool managing director Ian Ayre has confirmed the club have money to spend in the January transfer window.

Despite being linked with the likes of Darren Bent, The Reds are yet to confirm any additions to their top four chasing squad.

Kenny Dalglish spent in excess of £50 million last winter on striking pair Luis Suarez and Andy Carroll, and brought in seven new faces during the summer, and Ayre says the club aren't scared to add further.

"Money is not an issue," Ayre told Sky Sports News.

"If we need somebody and there's a player I think our owners have shown the level of commitment you would expect from a good ownership group that the manager will get supported whatever he needs.

"But that's not the same as saying we will just go spend money because we have got it or just because we can.

"It is about the long-term plan of where they want the squad and where they want the team to be, that's not about any particular transfer window it's about continuing to improve.

"If an opportunity presents itself I am sure we will look at it, but right now it's about keeping going and improving and getting the best out of what we have got.

"We have got some great players in a great squad of players and they are focused on pushing that forward."

With the club seventh in the Premier League, six points off fourth place Chelsea, who currently occupy the final Champions League qualifying spot, reinforcements would assist the club's fight for the top four.

However, with Dirk Kuyt without a Premier League goal this season, and Andy Carroll showing few signs of improving his form, Liverpool fans have demanded the club make an addition to their forward line.

Having now reached the Carling Cup final, Dalglish's know they're just one game away not only from ending their six-year trophy drought but also confirm a place in next season's Europa League, which their sixth place finish failed to yield last term.
