Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has told the BBC that he may strengthen the squad in January, but refused to comment on whether former Chelsea players Petr Cech and Fernando Torres were part of his plans.
“If there is a possibility that we can strengthen in January, we will look at that,” Rodgers said.
“There will always be speculation, but I won’t comment on any players.”
One area Liverpool needs to take care of is in the striker department since the sale of Luis Suarez to Barcelona and the injury to Daniel Sturridge Liverpool’s three remaining strikers Mario Balotelli, Rickie Lambert and Fabio Borini have only scored four goals between them in all competitions.
Torres is currently at AC Milan and is also having problems scoring goals which has led the Italians to want to cut their loan deal with Chelsea short, and with the former Liverpool star on wages of £150,000 per-week we do not think a return to Anfield is on the cards with the Spaniard more likely to return to his boyhood club Atletico Madrid who are looking to offload 27-year-old winger Alessio Cerci, after the Italian international has failed to settle in at the Vicente Calderon since arriving from Torino in the summer.
Former Blues number one goalkeeper Petr Cech has lost his starting place to Belgium international Thibaut Courtois, which in turn has Cech’s agent Viktor Kolar to tell Liverpool and any other top side to come and make Chelsea an offer.
Rodgers however seems to be satisfied with the job Brad Jones is doing after coming in for the dropped Simon Mignolet.
“Brad is in the team at the moment and has done well,” Rodgers added. “He is consistent right the way through. You need your number two goalkeeper to be loyal and work well when he comes in.”
