Swansea boss Brendan Rodgers insists he would rather buy 'quality over quantity' when the January transfer window opens at the end of December.
Rodgers has suffered a number of injuries to his squad, including full-back Angel Rangel (ankle) and striker Danny Graham (Achilles), while is move for defensive signings of Darnel Situ and Rafik Halliche failed to materialise when FIFA refused the duo international clearance.
And as the Swans prepare for a busy December with six games, starting with a trip to Blackburn on Saturday, Rodgers has concerns over the depth in his current squad at the Liberty Stadium.
He said: "I could bring in 10 bodies but they might be no good.
"I need to know I have quality, the first six months of the season was always going to be a learning curve for us and the players that got us promoted had earned the right (to play in the Premier League).
"We had a couple of moves that fell through so we have had a really small group, but January will give us a chance to assess where we are at and we know fine well that we need to strengthen, but I am not one to bring people in for the sake of it.
"I would rather have quality than quantity and we need enough quality players here if I need to make changes that can affect the game."
If the Welsh side can claim victory at Ewood Park it would move them 10 points clear of the bottom of the table.
