Kenny Dalglish has confirmed that he will look to strengthen the Liverpool squad during the January transfer window after being given the go ahead by the club’s owners.
With the budget set to be booted by the sale of Ryan Babel to Hoffenheim, Dalglish is set to spend.
“We had a positive meeting yesterday to discuss many things, including transfers,” Dalglish said. “There’s no problem as long as we’re responsible we can go and look for players, and try to sign players.
“But we’re not going to sit and give names, or comment on every question answered about an individual player. We’re certainly not going to talk about sums of money. We’ll try and spend the club’s money as diligently as I spend my own.”
Dalglish insists that Babel’s Liverpool career is not dead if he decides to reject a move to Hoffenheim.
“They accepted a bid from Hoffenheim,” he said.
“Ryan is considering what he wants to do, which is his right. He trained yesterday as if the conversation had never happened, so that’s no problem for us. If he’s here, he won’t be walking about sulking, he’ll be treated the same as everyone else.”
