Liverpool need to spend smart in the summer on wide players who will produce the goods.
Director of football Damien Comolli is a stats man, so surely he is aware that left-winger Stewart Downing has yet to score or provide an assist in 2,116 Premier League minutes.

The transfer fee of each seven wide players on my list range from a free transfer to a maximum of £15 million.
Rather than give you false hope by listing the likes of Eden Hazard, Ezequiel Lavezzi, Iker Muniain, James Rodríguez, Lucas Moura, Mario Götze and Nicolás Gaitán—here are seven alternative names.
