Brendan Rodgers is hopeful Liverpool can bolster their striking options before the transfer window closes at 11pm BST on Friday.
The manager was quizzed about possible signings at his pre-Arsenal press conference.
This after Jay Spearing and Andy Carroll departed on loan and Charlie Adam signed a permanent deal with Stoke.
Rodgers said: "We're hopeful. There are obviously a lot of people upstairs who are doing a lot of great work and working very, very hard. Let's hope by the time it shuts later on that we've got some reinforcements.
"There are a number of players we're enquiring about. There is no doubt we need to add goals to the team. That was always an objective when I first came in.
"If we can get recognised goalscorers to come in, that's the objective.
"I don't want to, out of respect for the other clubs and players, sit and go through every single name that has been linked with Liverpool, or this would be the longest press conference in the world.
"There'll be hopefully one or two coming in.
"Lots of names that have been thrown out there, unfortunately have been thrown out there for other reasons than us having the money and resources to get them in, which is the brutal honesty of it."
One name Rodgers did dismiss when asked was Klaas-Jan Huntelaar.
The boss was also quizzed on potential outgoings - particularly Daniel Pacheco.
He said: "I don't believe many more will leave, if any.
"Daniel is one I've already spoken to. He is a young player who has been here for a number of years and now he needs to go out and play, so there is a possibility that Daniel will go out either on loan or on a permanent deal."
Meanwhile, Rodgers reflected on the departure of Adam this morning.
"I just want to put on record my thanks to Charlie Adam," he said. "Charlie, since I've come in here, has been top class in his training and his mentality.
"He is a player who wants to play football. Both him and I had a mutual respect on that.
"He knew his situation but he never gave anything less than 100 per cent.
"Those guys who have gone out have gone out to get games of football.
"Does it free up a whole load of money for me to bring players in? Probably not. But we'll have to manage the finances at the minute and that's the situation we're in."
