Brendan Rodgers has revealed he hopes to sign up to six players in January's transfer window to boost Swansea City's Premier League survival bid.
The Swans have made an encouraging top-flight start and are currently 13th in the league but Rodgers refuses to get complacent due to his small squad.
"We are looking to identify targets to keep us strong," said the Swansea boss.
"To give us the opportunity to stay in the league, I feel we need between four to six players."
Alan Tate's means that Rodgers will hope to reinforce his defence while the Swansea boss also seems to want to strangthen his midfield by revealing his interest in signing England Under-21 midfielder on loan from Chelsea in January.
Swansea are the fourth lowest scorers in the Premier League so Rodgers may also want to add firepower to his attack.
"We've done very well up until now with the players that we have," admitted the Swansea manager.
"But you go into the second part of the season as you get towards May, you are going to need all of your players.
"I wanted to assess it through to January, the players that allowed us to arrive in this position deserved that opportunity.
"To give us the opportunity to stay in the league, I feel we need between four to six players just to ensure that we keep our strength and our depth.
"That is something we will look to do and I'm sure the club want to try and solve that as well."
