Desperate to go one better than their Premier League runners-up spot next season, Liverpool have been one of the most active top flight sides in the transfer window this summer.
Southampton duo Adam Lallana and Rickie Lambert have both traded St Mary's for Anfield, with the club also agreeing deals for Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Emre Can and young Belgium striker Divock Origi.
But that hasn't stopped further speculation from brewing, with 'Swiss Messi' Xherdan Shaqiri strongly linked with a move to Merseyside following a dazzling World Cup campaign.
Netting a fine hat-trick against Honduras to send Switzerland in the last 16, the 22-year-old mustered another lively display against final-favourites Argentina, but was powerless to prevent the South American's sealing an extra-time win.
But the Swiss' exit only seems to have fuelled the rumours of his anticipated Anfield switch, with fans keen to see the forward in the red shirt next term.
