Liverpool Eye ‘Major Signing’

Liverpool manager, Bendan Rodgers, has been left frustrated in the transfer market so far, but is still hoping of making a 'major signing' before the window closes on Friday.

The Reds sealed to a 4-0 victory in the Merseyside derby against rivals Everton on Tuesday night, and Rodgers was happy with the big win.

Despite last night’s positives from Anfield, it has been a difficult transfer window for the Liverpool boss, with Chelsea hijacking his main target, Mohamed Salah, after Liverpool reportedly had already been negotiating for two months with the player.

However, Rodgers reiterated after the game that the Reds are hopeful to conclude a major signing over the next couple of days.

"I think we will hopefully do something over the next couple of days," he said.

"I saw some headlines after yesterday's press conference in terms of the manager being angry with the club - nothing is further from the truth.

"We are not just going to get the players we want to get in for a number of reasons.

"Hopefully we can have a major signing before the window shuts and if we can do that, we will be set up for the remaining games."

The Liverpool boss said the win in a massive game over their rivals will give his side a confidence boost, but they have to continue with similar performances in order to challenge for the Champions League spots.

"I think all wins are important but especially against your rivals and psychologically it was a big win and can re-iterate the confidence and belief in the squad," said Rodgers.

"We have to keep our foot to the floor and keep these performances and keep scoring goals.

"This was a massive game. I think we have shown all season we are going to be in contention for fourth place."

Liverpool are next traveling to West Brom, before facing Arsenal in the league and FA Cup. Can they finish amongst the top four and perhaps even have a say in the Premier League title race?
