Liverpool owner John W Henry wants his club to sign players for the long-term, not the short term.
The Anfield club has already landed 20 million pound England Under-21 midfielder Jordan Henderson from Sunderland and has been linked with Valencia starlet Juan Mata who excelled in this summer's U-21 European Championship.
But it will not be signing teenage starlet Connor Wickham as the 18-year-old completed a move to Sunderland on Wednesday.
“Speculation on players shouldn't include those of a certain age. We are not going to be successful by merely filling short-term needs at LFC,” Henry tweeted. We already have quite a bit of experience in the club so it should be a good balance."
He added: "Everything in sports is overpriced now - especially the cost of winning."
But with promises by the Liverpool owner to make some early signings in the transfer market and seeing rivals Manchester United capture three new players including Phil Jones of Blackburn Rovers, concern has grown among some Liverpool fans.
However, Henry was keen to point out that there is still plenty of time bring players in during the transfer window.
“Some things happen early and some happen late, the important thing is that things happen," Henry said.
