We are now only a couple of days away from the explosion of the winter silly season which will no doubt see the Premier League's big clubs—Liverpool, Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester City and Tottenham—be linked with just about every half-decent player in the world.
Players will be linked regardless of whether or not they are available, regardless of whether or not the club allegedly on "the verge" of signing them has any money and regardless of whether or not the player would have any interest in joining the rumoured club.
Normally when I do transfer-related articles I try to stay as realistic as possible but when I was assigned this topic I thought I'd go a slightly different way and look at the players the Liverpool fans want to see Damien Comolli and Kenny Dalglish bring to the club.
I did stop short of including Lionel Messi, because some things in life just aren't as simple as they are on Championship Manager, but I think it's still a pretty strong list of players who have all been linked with Liverpool over the last few months.
I hope you enjoy.
