Liverpool manager Roy Hodson is keen to invest in the January transfer window if the proposed deal to buy the club goes through.
The Reds are confident that New England Sports Ventures will soon be in charge after having their £300million bid accepted by the board.
Current owners Tom Hicks and George Gillett have deemed the sale unlawful and have vowed to pursue the matter in courts.
On the pitch, Liverpool have made their worst start to a season for 57 years with only a single Premier League victory their opening seven matches.
However, the club are confident that if the deal were to be completed, Hodgson would have money to spend.
The former Fulham manager said: “We know what we must do. We need new players and investment and know we’re weak in certain areas.
“These things have been the case since I arrived here and we have not had a chance to put it right.
“I ask for the fans’ patience, trust and belief as we will get it right.”
Hodgson is keen to bring in new faces, after admitting his squad is not strong enough.
“It is clear we need to strengthen in certain areas of the team and bring in more quality,” he said.
“I can guarantee that at the end of the season we won’t be sitting there at the bottom.
“Sometimes, even after a few games, people see you down there and are ready to pass out, but we’re not panicking. There is a lot more to come.
“A couple of good performances and good wins will put us in a decent position for the season ahead.”
