Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has admitted he will be looking to strengthen his squad in the January transfer window.

The Reds are short of options in attack after failing to bring in a replacement for Andy Carroll before the close of the summer transfer window.

The need for reinforcements, particularly in attack, has increased because of the foot injury to Fabio Borini leaving Luis Suarez as the only recognised fit senior striker.

Rodgers has revealed he has spoken to the club's American owners about the need to bolster his squad in January and he is hoping to get the green light to bring in some new faces.

"There are still areas we want to reinforce - and we have to reinforce as soon as we can," Rodgers is quoted as saying in the Mail on Sunday.

"Our best team are comparable to any team in the Premier League. But we're a very thin squad and we are having to challenge on a lot of fronts.

"I've had good conversations with the owners and they understand where we are at as a team."
