Liverpool have no interest in signing Inter Milan contract rebel Wesley Sneijder - but managing director Ian Ayre insists the club have the finances in place to make any signings they want - reports Sky Sports.

The 28-year-old Dutch international is set to leave the San Siro this month after refusing to take a pay cut with the Serie A outfit, and is believed to be in discussions with Turkish giants Galatasaray.

However, Reds boss Brendan Rodgers has also been heavily linked with a move for the playmaker, as he looks to strengthen his Anfield squad further this month, following the recent addition of Daniel Sturridge from Chelsea.

In a recent interview, Ayre revealed that Liverpool are working on a number of targets, and says that money is not an issue for the Premier League club.

"It is about who Brendan has got his designs on. What he wants, we will always say the same thing, if we find the right deals for the right players we will get it done.

"Everyone who operates in January knows it is always a difficult window, but we will do what we can. We have got targets in sight and if we can resolve those great, if not then we will move onto summer and do what we need to do.

"We don't have any issues with finances, it is about doing what is best in the long-term interests of the football club.

"With the advent of financial fair play it means everyone should be running the club prudently and that does not mean not investing but investing wisely and at the right time, and we will always do that."

Back in January 2011, Liverpool broke their transfer record when they forked out a whopping £35million on the signing of Andy Carroll from Newcastle United, just days after bringing in Luis Suarez for a reported £22.8million.

Both strikers have enjoyed varying levels of success since arriving on Merseyside, with the latter currently out on loan with West Ham United. The Reds have been rather more conservative in the transfer market since splashing out on a number of high profile signings who have failed to live up to the hype, and expectations at Anfield.
