Liverpool striker David Ngog is relishing the prospect of added competition up front in January.
The Frenchman has been one of the Reds' better players this season, showing clear signs of improvement playing in the shadow of the troubled Fernando Torres.
NESV's takeover of Liverpool in October has signalled an intention to buy in the January transfer window, with a new frontman thought to be at the top of manager Roy Hodgson's list of priorities.
Hodgson has admitted that he was disappointed not to be able to bring in a striker during the summer, but it now seems certain that there will be at least one new arrival to challenge Ngog and Torres at Anfield.
Ngog however appears unflustered by the speculation, with the 21-year-old expected to lead the line in their Europa League game against Napoli on Thursday having scored seven goals in all competitions so far this season.
"When you are a professional you know that it's normal that the coach will want to make the team stronger," he said.
"I'm here now and ready to fight. Of course I want to play and be on the pitch every week, and of course I will fight for that.
"It's good for me (to be top scorer) but for now the most important thing is to get the team in good shape and to try to win games. Then if I score goals, it's better of course.
"I feel more confident after the few goals I've scored, and I feel more comfortable in the team this season. But I try to improve, always."
Ngog has scored the majority of his goals in the Europa League so far, with five in six games, but is wary of the threat Napoli could pose Liverpool, who are slowly finding their feet after a dismal start to the season.
"We have three games left, so maybe two wins would put us through to the next stage," Ngog added.
"Napoli are a really good team. They're fifth in Italy and they attack really well with their wingers and crosses. They are a really dangerous team."
