The comments, made ahead of Liverpool's weekend clash with Newcastle, come after Rodgers failed to secure any signings before the summer transfer window closed.
At that time, the new manager had been on the hunt for much-needed fire power and speculation linking a number of names to the club ran rife.
"We'll have funds," Rodgers said on Friday.
"I'm in talks with the owners at the moment along with our recruitment team. We know we need to reinforce the group, so that's something that is ongoing."
Liverpool are reported to now be chasing Arsenal forward Theo Walcott, whose contract runs out next summer, but Rodgers remained tight-lipped.
The gaffer did paid tribute to the efforts of his existing squad, amid pressure to earn more wins.
"Our squad is very small, very thin on the ground, and the players have performed admirably up until now," he said.
"They have been terrific in their mentality considering the games they've been playing.
"At this moment in time, it really is about reinforcing the group rather than looking too much at people going the other way."
January is always a difficult window. You don't get too many top, top players.
But Joe Cole has been linked with a move away from the Anfield club.
When questioned about the No 10's future with Liverpool, Rodgers said: "I've have good communication with Joe and we speak regularly.
"He along with the other players are working hard to find their way into the team. Joe is like everyone else."
Back in August, Liverpool ended up releasing Andy Carroll on loan to West Ham without securing a replacement for the £35m striker.
Players like Clint Dempsey, Yossi Benayoun and even veteran Italian star Alessandro Del Piero had been chased by the club, but with no success.
Discontent among the Kop faithful over the lack of signings prompted principal owner John Henry, of the Fenway Sport Group, to write an open letter to fans.
He warned that "risky spending" wouldn't be an option and that Liverpool needed to build for the long-term future, rather than settle for quick fixes.
Rodgers remained pragmatic about the situation and urged fans to "keep the faith".
