Merseysiders will not be signing Dutch midfield player confirms Reds coach.
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers have distanced the Reds from a move for in-demand Inter Milan playmaker Wesley Sneijder during the January transfer window, says the Metro.
It had been thought that the highly-skilled Netherlands international was moving to Turkish giants Galatasaray this month, however, it is now believed that the player would prefer a switch to the Premier League instead.
But the Reds manager says that Anfield will not be is destination: “You could probably rattle off about 20 names and the answer would be the same. The club have been linked with a whole host of players, but I couldn’t see that [Sneijder] happening,’ Rodgers said.
The Northern Irishman did hint though that the Merseysiders may still be bringing new faces to the club: “We’ll see what happens over the course of the next few weeks. Daniel [Sturridge] was our main priority and we’ll have to see what else is available.
“There’s no doubt we need to support the group. We had 20 players training this morning, of which some of those are our younger players, so we know we need to reinforce and top up the group. That’s something we’ll look to do.
“If we can do it then great and if not, then we’ll wait until the summer.”
