Brendan Rodgers is looking to bring in a striker on loan before the emergency loan window closes on November 25th.
Marvin Emnes has returned to Middlesbrough - who we face at home on Sunday, after a month at the club and the Swansea City manager is keen to find a quick replacement for the Dutchman.
At present, Rodgers has Stephen Dobbie available, who is most likely to start up front in tomorrow's game. Plus, Craig Beattie and Gorka Pintado, but they've both been injured for a number of weeks so are currently lacking match fitness.
'Ideally we want to bring in one just to strengthen the group over a busy period or else we've got to wait until January,'
'There's a lot of work going on behind the scenes, and we'll see what happens in the next week or so.'
'We wanted to keep Marvin but it wasn't possible, but I've got good players here,'
'Craig Beattie's worked very, very hard to get his fitness. He's training and working well and I know he's champing at the bit to get a chance.
'Stephen Dobbie has shown us what he can do and Gorka Pintado is in the background as well.
'I've said all along when I came here that I wanted three players. I got one in Scott Sinclair, we got the second one in Kemy Agustien and we're waiting on the third one.
'I felt if we could get the three players in and keep the players that we have here we could have a really, really good season.
But I'm not a magician, I'm a coach and a manager, and I work with the players who are here and until we, as a club, can get in the players we want then the job continues.
'I'm really happy with the group. They are developing really well, have shown great motivation every day and as long as we continue to do that and maintain that, whilst on the look-out for other targets who can improve the group, then I'll be content.
'There's lots of targets and there's lots of people who fit the bill, but there's obviously other things that come into it to get a player in, in relation to his availability or in relation to the finance in that the club may not be able to afford to bring the player in we want.'
