Rodgers says it may be difficult to make signings in January on a limited budget Reuters

Brendan Rodgers has admitted that Liverpool will not be able to spend big money in the January transfer window but suggested he still needs more quality in the final third.

Liverpool created plenty of chances against Swansea on Sunday but were unable to convert and were made to settle for a 0-0 draw which meant they have now gone eight league games without a defeat.

Rodgers' side are currently 11th in the Premier League, and while it is clear that the side is gradually improving, it seems that there will not be any major signings in the New Year.

"If we can get in the quality in the final third we need to support what we have, then there will be enough to keep the team moving forward," said Rodgers, as quoted on Sky Sports.

"But I am not so sure that will happen in January. This year the club wanted to balance the books and see where we are at.

"There has been big investment in the club and lots of players went out and a few came in during the summer, so we will look to do some business.

"But it is a thing which is evolving more slowly. The team is coming together and I can see improvement all the time."

There has been heavy investment in the club since Fenway Sports Group bought the club, with the club's transfer record being smashed when they paid £35million for Andy Carroll.

Kenny Dalglish was also handed a significant transfer kitty during his reign, but it seems as though Rodgers will have to work on a tighter budget when the transfer reopens next year.

Liverpool do have the option of recalling on-loan forward Andy Carroll in January, however, it could be that Rodgers looks to bring another striker to the club in a cut price deal.

There are options around Europe with the likes of Klaas Jan Huntelaar, Fernando Llorente and Theo Walcott all out of contract at the end of the season.
