Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has confirmed the club have looked at several potential acquisitions over the course of the transfer window but concedes they are not close to any deals.

The Reds had been expected to make a number of additions before the deadline later this month, although the club have missed out on the player who was believed to have been their prime target.

Mohamed Salah, the Basel attacker, had long been linked with a move to Liverpool and reports suggested the Egypt international was closing in on a switch to Anfield. Chelsea, however, have beaten them to a deal.

Chelsea announced on Thursday afternoon that an agreement had been reached with Basel, and Salah is set to arrive at Stamford Bridge as a replacement for Manchester United-bound Juan Mata.

It is back to the drawing board now for Liverpool and, although Rodgers is unsure if any signings will be made, he has assured fans that the club have been doing all they can to recruit fresh blood.

"There's nothing as of yet," he told reporters at Melwood.

"There have obviously been targets we've looked at, but there's nothing imminent.

"We've looked at a number of players. I'll not give away any names, I'll never do that.

"We'll just see what the window brings for us. We're in the market for players to help the squad and if we can bring them in then great."
