Laudrup has bolstered his attacking options this summer with the record signing of Wilfried Bony from Vitesse Arnhem, but he would like to bring in a different type of forward before the transfer deadline.

He is staying relaxed over his transfer business, though, as he is happy with every other department in his squad and knows there is plenty of time left before the window slams shut.

Having also signed the likes of Jordi Amat and Jose Canas, and extended Jonathan de Guzman's loan from Villarreal for a second season, Laudrup's main focus is on keeping all his key players.

Speaking after Saturday's 3-0 friendly win at Reading, he told Sky Sports News: "I think we still need another striker, another kind of striker, but apart from that I really don't know.

"If nothing more happens, and by happens I mean if none of the regulars leave the squad, then I think maybe only one player would be enough.

"We still have 30-something days."

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
