Once again it seems Liverpool face a pivotal transfer window in the club’s history.
It seems to have been that way for the past three years, with first Roy Hodgson, then Kenny Dalglish, and now Brendan Rodgers tasked with the seemingly massive task of reviving the clubs once great fortunes.
Rodgers has endured an up and down debut season at the Anfield helm, something that has also been mirrored with his transfer activity.
The early signs from January signings Daniel Sturridge and Philippe Coutinho are that they will go on to be astute purchases, whilst summer arrivals Fabio Borini, Joe Allen and Oussama Assaidi are yet to win over the Anfield faithful.
With the clubs recent record in the transfer market questionable to say the least, it is imperative Rodgers gets it right this time around if he is to take his project to the next level.
