Rodgers Looking To Make As Many Liverpool Signings As Possible

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers is looking to make as many signings as he can for his 12th place side but believes they still have a chance to finish fourth in the Premier League.

Asked if he was looking to make one or two signings or as many as he could Rodgers told the Independent, “As much as I can do, really. [But] we have got a real good group here. I have always thought that if you have three-and-a-half goal-scorers in your team, you have got a chance."

"We have got Luis Suarez. Steven Gerrard will get goals. He has been terrific this season and taken on an even greater responsibility with the juniors. But he will get goals."

"There is no question of that. If we can add a couple more that you know are goal-scorers, who instinctively get into the box and get goals, with the domination that we are having in games, then we have got a chance in the second half of the season.”

The Liverpool boss still believes that his side can still climb to a top four finish despite currently sitting in 12th place.

Asked if he thought that fourth was still a realistic aim, he said “absolutely, absolutely” and pointed to the fact that no team has pulled away in that position.

“Let’s be honest – it is a big ask; a massive ask,” Rodgers told the Independent prior to his side’s meeting with Southampton at Anfield. “But [fourth] has to be our target. We are going to look to try and get as close to that as we possibly can.”
