Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has claimed he doesn't expect to sign any players before the January transfer window closes at 11pm tonight (2 February) but he hopes "to keep" every member of the current squad at Anfield.
The former Swansea boss signed nine new players during the summer transfer window in Mario Balotelli, Adam Lallana, Rickie Lambert, Lazar Markovic, Emre Can, Dejan Lovren, Javier Manquillo, Alberto Moreno and Divock Origi (who remains on loan at Lille).
However, even though some reports have lately claimed the boss may sign a striker while parting ways with Balotelli in the January transfer window, Rodgers looks ready to face the second part of the season with his existing squad.
"We will be very quiet. I said we are looking to keep all players here, it will be quiet. I think the players we have and the market dictates it. I am happy with the team and the way the squad is developing, we want to keep all the players here," Rodgers was quoted by the Mirror as saying during his press conference ahead of the FA Cup trip to Bolton on Wednesday.
"Unless there's something there we really believe then we don't want to stop the development of our young players. Rather than look at bringing in a senior player we want to look within and look at the talents we have. You always have to look for that star quality, but if it's not available you work with what you have."
Rodgers expects Daniel Sturridge's injury return to help Liverpool achieve their targets in the second part of the season after the England striker scored on his return from a five-month injury absence against West Ham.
"Daniel is such a good player, he makes those around him better. Him coming back for the second part of season is a real help for us" the Ulsterman said.
Meanwhile, the boss has suggested he will make some changes to his starting line-up against Bolton, as the trip to the Macron stadium comes just three days before a crucial Premier League derby at Everton.
"When there are so many games, you have to plan forward but I'll pick a team to win the game [against Bolton]. I have a squad I trust and believe in."
