Liverpool FC is a club on the rise after what was one of the most tumultuous seasons in its 119-year history.
To recap, Roy Hodgson replaced Rafa Benitez last summer after the Spaniard's six-year reign ended in a disappointing fashion, and Hodgson was coming off a brilliant season with Fulham in which he took them all the way to the Europa League final.
Owners Tom Hicks and George Gillett had put the club up for sale in April and finally found the right buyer in October in the form of John W. Henry and New England Sports Venture (now Fenway Sports Group), according to Sir Martin Broughton, who was appointed by the American duo to oversee the sale,
There were some court delays, some harsh words, but in the end, Henry, owner of the Boston Red Sox since 2002, added the storied English club to his portfolio.
Fast forward to January. Liverpool endured terrible results, and Hodgson was sent packing and was replaced by legend King Kenny Dalglish.
At the very end of the January transfer window, former darling of the Kop Fernando Torres forced through a transfer to Chelsea and FSG splashed out around £55 million for replacements Luis Suarez and Andy Carroll. And the Reds haven't looked back.
Liverpool fans certainly don't want the spending to stop there. Liverpool desperately need some width in the side in the form of wingers and have also been in need of a left back for the last three years.
You can bet the Reds will be very active in the transfer window this summer as Kenny, newly signed to a three-year deal, will want to strengthen his side and take them back to the top.
Here are eight players who have been linked with the Reds recently and probably will be linked all summer until they are signed by someone.
