Liverpool manager Roy Hodgson admits there may not be enough time for him to make more signings before the transfer window closes.
Hodgson has added six new faces to the fold in the summer months, bringing in Joe Cole, Jonjo Shelvey, Milan Jovanovic, Danny Wilson, Christian Poulsen and Brad Jones.
And while admitting he would like to add further reinforcements, Hodgson believes that, with only one week remaining in the current transfer window, he may not have enough time to study potential signings.
He said: “I’d like some money to spend if I could research where that money could be spent wisely.
“Giving me a lot now and telling me to go out and buy some players with one week of the transfer window left would not be particularly advantageous.
“I’ve only been here for five weeks or so and I’d want to make sure I had assessed absolutely everyone, including those at the academy, just in case we have an outstanding 17-year-old.
“We might have a Javier Hernandez there so I don’t want to go out and spend £50m on buying another one.”
