Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has admitted that the Reds will not be very active during the ongoing January transfer window.
The Merseyside club was one of the busiest clubs during the summer transfer window with the manager spending over £115m. Rodgers brought in nine new players to make up for the loss of Luis Suarez and their return to the Champions League, the first time since 2009.
However, despite the heavy spending and the new arrivals, the Anfield outfit have failed to replicate the form of last season that almost took them to their first Premier League title in the history of the club. Liverpool have made a poor start this season and this sees them in eighth place, 17 points of leaders Chelsea and five points behind United in fourth place.
Most of the summer arrivals have failed to settle, mainly the strikers Rickie Lambert and the £16m-rated Mario Balotelli have failed to live up to expectations. The latter is yet to score in the Premier League for Liverpool this season.
The club have also missed second top-scorer of last season, Daniel Sturridge, who has failed to play a game since the end of August due to multiple injury troubles.
However, despite their struggles, the manager has revealed that the club does not plan to delve into the transfer market and go on a spending spree. The Northern Irishman also suggested that all the rumours regarding imminent arrivals are just stories made up by agents to engineer a move for their clients.
"It will be quiet. I've said before we wouldn't be doing much over the course of January," Rodgers told talkSPORT.
"There are players who are linked with Liverpool all the time. That may be agents looking to get their player a move. For us, it will be pretty quiet," the former Swansea City manager added.
