Liverpool's preseason tour of the United States might be over, but the transfer window is not. Far from it.

Indeed, the only thing certain on Merseyside right now is the total lack of uncertainty. The club you have watched Rodgers trot out thus far is far from a finished article.

A number of players will leave and a few more should be brought in.

This week, news broke (via that Fiorentina were keen on Alberto Aquilani. BBC also confirmed a bid by West Ham for Andy Carroll has been lodged.

If preseason form is any indication, expect Charlie Adam, Nathan Eccleston and Jay Spearing to be sold to the highest bidder. You may also see some of the younger lads go out on loan.

With these moves in mind, it becomes clear that Fabio Borini will not be the only major signing of the summer.

Both Borini and Lucas Leiva need suitable reserves at striker and defensive midfielder respectively. Furthermore, although Jordan Henderson is a presumed starter, the new manager may want to have a contingency plan in place.

However, the biggest area of need continues to be on the wings.

Luis Suarez is set to star on the right flank behind Borini in 2012/13. The other side of the pitch remains a question mark. Raheem Sterling, Joe Cole and Stewart Downing are the presumed competition.

Yet, would any of those players warrant serious consideration on any of the other Premier League clubs vying for a Champions League place? I think not.

What follows is a list of world class wingers that might fit the new 4-3-3.
