Being Liverpool it comes with the territory. Any rumours surrounding potential transfers are always likely to make headlines and sell newspapers, and with the summer transfer window fast approaching this year is likely to be no different.
Brendan Rodgers goes into his third transfer window as Liverpool boss on the back of two very different windows so far.
Upon his arrival, Rodgers inherited a talented group of players who had failed to perform under the previous regime, and a select few who had struggled to justify their large transfer fees. The performances of big-money buys, Fabio Borini and Joe Allen did nothing to dispel fans' fears that the new regime had followed suit and failed in the transfer market.
However, the January signings of Philippe Coutinho and Daniel Sturridge more than allayed these early fears and following a positive second half to the season, Reds fans can go into the new transfer window filled with optimism and hope.
It would be impossible to analyse every player that has been touted for a move to Liverpool since the curtain came down on the 2012/13 season. The Anfield outfit are linked with dozens of names, daily.
What I will do is analyse a select few whilst highlighting what each potential signing could add to the current squad.
As reported by the official Liverpool website, a deal has more or less been agreed for Celta Vigo forward Iago Aspas, so he will not be featured over the coming pages.
