Benitez has admitted that he expects some activity come the turn of the year.
"For January I hope for something but not all of these names that have appeared in the papers," the Spaniard told reporters at a Press conference today.
"We have been working for many months in this sense, I am meeting with [sporting director Riccardo] Bigon continuously.
"I will not say, however, what we need. We have been paired with more than 50 players combined for the January market. I will have to ask the League to increase the squad size.
"Someone will arrive, but not 50 "
