Benitez admits he is in daily discussions with technical director Michael Emenalo over potential transfer activity for January.
"Hopefully we have two or three days after this game where we'll have plenty of time to talk about names," he said.
"There's no formal meeting because we can chat every day. Michael is watching the training session and we talk every day - about players and how the team is doing.
"I know what Michael likes and he knows what I like and we come to an agreement."
