Liverpool: Potential transfer targets

Brede Hangeland
Upon taking over at Liverpool, Hodgson vowed he wouldn't raid his old club Fulham. But that hasn't stopped Liverpool from being linked with Cottagers centre-back Brede Hangeland. The Norwegian is a defender of the highest class and has been sensational since Hodgson brought him to the Premier League from Copenhagen. Rumours suggest Liverpool are ready to table a bid of £7m to test Fulham's resolve.
Madjid Bougherra
Both Liverpool and Arsenal have been linked with Rangers defender Madjid Bougherra, with a fee or around £5m being mentioned. The Algerian international has been impressive north of the border but now the 27-year-old apparently wants a return to the Premier League where he had a spell with Charlton.
David Trezeguet
Juventus striker David Trezeguet is entering the last year of his contract so could be available for as little as £8m. Apparently Roy Hodgson is viewing him as the perfect addition to a new look Liverpool strike force. At 32-years-of-age he'd still have something to offer having been one of the most prolific strikers in Europe over the past decade.

Liverpool are under new management, and Roy Hodgson is set for a busy summer with regards to the comings and goings at Anfield.

Javier Mascherano is destined to leave, while the futures of Fernando Torres and Steven Gerrard are far from certain. So new recruits will be essential, especially if Liverpool harbour any hope of returning to the top four.

Here, we take a look at the major transfer rumours circulating in the press and on the internet and consider who might be turning out at Anfield next season.
