Liverpool FC are set to sign some big-name players in the summer transfer window, with their Carling Cup win seeing them to return to European football in the UEFA Europa League at the least.
As the Reds director of football Damien Comolli said, the Anfield club are a more attractive outfit now that they have a trophy and European competition once again.
Of course, if the club were to win the FA Cup and qualify for the UEFA Champions League, their stock would rise immeasurably and the likes of Eden Hazard or Edinson Cavani would be realistic targets.
However, given Liverpool's performances this season and how they fortuitously beat Cardiff City at Wembley, that outcome is far from certain.
And so if the club were to end the season as they currently stand, players like the Lille superstar and Napoli striking sensation would be highly unlikely arrivals on Merseyside this summer.
Nonetheless, Liverpool will still be able to attract big-name stars, and here are 10 who could sign on the back of that Carling Cup victory.
