Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has not given up signing a replacement for Luis Suarez despite entering the final two weeks of the transfer window without a primary target.
Suarez, who scored 31 league goals last season, was sold by the Reds in mid-July but since the collapse of their attempts to sign Loic Remy from Queens Park Rangers the club are yet to make any significant moves in the window in order to secure a replacement.
Just over two weeks of the window remain ahead of the 1 September deadline yet Rodgers' desire to sign a new striker has not relented, with the Liverpool boss keen on bringing in a "top-level" forward
"The money is there - and we will look to improve at the top end of the field until the very end of the window," Rodgers said.
"It's not easy to get a top-level striker, no, but we have to keep looking. We certainly need something because we haven't brought in another striker so far, apart from Rickie Lambert.
"You just never know what will happen in that last week - the window will always throw up something.
"We will persevere and the boys are working hard behind the scenes to see what information we can get on the availability of players."
Alberto Moreno is set to become Liverpool's eighth summer signing in the transfer window, in which the club have added only Rickie Lambert to their forward line, while Fabio Borini is set to leave for Sunderland.
But despite the lack of a marque striker addition, Rodgers is confident he has added to his Liverpool squad adequately this summer ahead of the new season.
"We are very much looking forward to it," added Rodgers. "We've had a really good pre-season, preparations have gone very well and we are all excited and looking forward to playing at Anfield on Sunday.
"We've brought in a lot of top class players, we've added depth to the squad and the group is now well prepared for the coming season."
