    Liverpool fans have seen some of the latest players linked to the club this week and there are some others to think about.

    Fans of the club may have been hoping for some new additions considering the ban for Luis Suarez and the teams form in front of goal.

    In the last couple games, the Reds have seen a disappointing defeat to Bolton sandwiched by two really good performances against Manchester City.

    Next up is Manchester United in the FA Cup—that should be a very good game.

    Top clubs could always use new talent, however, so here are some more of the latest rumours for Liverpool.

Edinson Cavani

    In what would surely be a fantastic move for the club, Footybunker reports that Liverpool may try and sign Napoli striker Edinson Cavani.

    The move would give Liverpool a clinical striker and one of the most sought-after players in Europe. Cavani works well with Luis Suarez in the Uruguayan national team. The prospect of them linking up at Anfield would be very exciting for Liverpool fans.

Alexander Hleb

    According to the Metro, Liverpool may be interested in Barcelona outcast Alexander Hleb. Liverpool fans may remember Hleb from his time with Arsenal, where he did a good enough job to prompt a big move to Barcelona.

    Hleb's career has taken a dramatic nosedive since then, but he is still a creative player and could provide Liverpool with a nice rotational player to use on the wings or behind the striker.

Jores Okore

    According to, Liverpool is keeping an eye on FC Nordsjaelland defender Jores Okore.

    The young defender is beginning to attract some interest from clubs like Liverpool and Manchester United and his parent club may not stand in the way of a move.

James Forrest

    Liverpool is also being linked with Celtic player James Forrest. The young winger has attracted interest from Tottenham and according to, Liverpool has now emerged as a candidate.

    James Forrest would fit in with Kenny Dalglish's approach of looking for more British talent and if he really does continue in good form, he may become a serious target for the club.

Pablo Hernandez

    There have been reports that another Valencia man may be making his way to the Premier League. claims that Spanish winger Pablo Hernandez may possibly move to Anfield.

    Hernadez would be following in the footsteps of his former teammates David Silva and Juan Mata. It would be interesting to see if he would have the same kind of impact.

David Texeira

    According to the Metro, Liverpool may look to snap up another young talent in the form of FC Groningen striker David Texeira.
