The Hammers boss does not expect any more transfer activity at Upton Park and admits that his side has reached its outlay limit as the window draws to a close
The Hammers have brought in nine fresh faces during the summer as they prepare to battle to remain in the Premier League. However the east London club has long been linked with the out-of-favor Reds forward, as well as its former youth academy star, Joe Cole, both reported to be surplus to requirements at Anfield.
Allardyce told Sky Sports: "I don't see much at all, to be honest with you, in terms of ins [transfers in].
"I think that our finances now are on the limit, as it were, speaking to our co-chairmen. I think that we'll work with what we've got."
The veteran manager left the door open for late movement but implied that any such deals would only be temporary.
"We'll never say never, you never know what might turn up," he added, "but if it's going to be anything, it's never going to get past a loan deal, I think."
