Brendan Rodgers
Rodgers says no progress has been made in the window.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers says the club are assessing a number of players with a view to making new signings in the January transfer window but have made no further progress in adding to their squad.

The Reds have been heavily linked with a move for FC Basel winger Mohamed Salah but are yet to agree a deal to bring the Egyptian to Anfield.

Having suffered injuries to Mohamed Sakho and Luis Enrique Rodgers could also be tempted into a move for a new defender however the Liverpool boss says the club are no closer to securing any new faces.

"There are no real developments yet," he said. "You see across the markets, clubs are just looking and seeing where they can improve. It's similar to ourselves.

"We've been working over a number of months on possibilities that could strengthen the team. We just need to wait and see how that goes in the next couple of weeks.

"The owners have been great in terms of if there's something there to be done that will help us and improve us, I'm sure they'll support that. It's one where it could be a difficult market to improve in.

"But it certainly won't be for the want of trying. There's a lot of good work going on; we're assessing a whole raft of players. It's just whether they are going to be available for us to bring in now."

With six points separating Liverpool from the Premier league summit, Rodgers may feel one crucial addition could be the difference between settling for a top four spot and contesting for the title.

Such has been the success of Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge's partnership in attack, Rodgers is unlikely to see any need for additions to his forward line, even if the latter's fragile fitness has been a concern this season.

The likes of Victor Moses have been linked with a move away from Liverpool this month but it seems as though Rodgers will refrain from changing his squad ahead of the second half of the campaign.
