3. Sami Hyypia – Click right to see Liverpool’s best signings of the Premier League era – A solid rock and firm foundation at the back for ten years, the Finnish giant was plucked from Holland for just £2.6million and became one of the clubs best Premier League centre-backs, perhaps rivalled only by home-grown legend Jamie Carragher. He won almost everything there was to win in a red shirt and its cruel a player of his talent ended his career without the Premier League title it truly deserved. 11 10. Javier Mascherano – Click right to see Liverpool’s best signings of the Premier League era – One of the most complicated deals of the decade, Mascherano was wrapped up in an ownership row at West Ham which saw him limited to making less than ten Premier League appearances at Upton Park. He was soon rejuvenated under Rafa Benitezs stewardship at Liverpool, with the Argentine bulldog developing into one of the worlds finest holding midfielders. His partnership with Xabi Alonso in the centre of the park allowed Steven Gerrard to play in a more advanced role to support Fernando Torres, arguably one of the most free-scoring periods of the clubs recent history. He was famously sent off in his first game at Old Trafford, which only enhanced his reputation with Reds fans. He spent three seasons at Anfield before the big guns came along, with Mascherano going on to play a vital role at Barcelona for years to come. 5. Pepe Reina – Click right to see Liverpool’s best signings of the Premier League era – Simply the best goalkeeper Liverpool have had in recent seasons, winning FA Cup, League Cup and UEFA Super Cup trophies. Known as a spectacular shot stopper with expert distribution, while he did commit a few blunders, he made up for it with a great passion for the red shirt. A shame he never had the chance to extend his career under Brendan Rodgers, he played his best years under Rafa Benitez, winning three Golden Glove awards. His departure last season was sad for fans, as well as the likable glovesman, but, as with many of his former team-mates, he will always have a special relationship with the club he served with distinction for nine years. 7. Luis Garcia – Click right to see Liverpool’s best signings of the Premier League era – Not one of the most effective players to have ever donned the shirt he did have the tendency to lose the ball but one of the best to watch. Joining in 2004, the tricky Spaniard left Anfield as a Kop hero after scoring the goal (it WAS in, Mourinho, of course it was) that took the side to the Champions League final in Istanbul one of five he netted in the competition in his first season. He got fans on their feet with a number of spectacular strikes, most notably against Juventus and old enemy Chelsea, an exhibition of fancy footwork, and was one of the main attacking threats for Benitezs side before eventually returning to his homeland with Atletico Madrid. 11 11 Liverpool have wasted little time getting down to business this summer, having recruited six players already, with more reportedly on their way.James Milner will hope to fill Steven Gerrard’s boots after arriving in a free transfer from Manchester City, and while Raheem Sterling is set to move the other way, his £50million price tag will only add to the funds at manager Brendan Rodgers’ disposal.The Reds may be well known for their transfer flops in recent years – the British record signing of Andy Carroll, misplaced faith in Mario Balotelli and who knows what they were thinking with El Hadji Diouf – but they’ve also uncovered some absolute gems in the transfer market.But who are their best signings in the Premier League era?Click the arrow above, right, to check out a list of Anfield heroes…Anyone we missed? Tells us who, and why you think they should make the list, in the comments below! 4. Xabi Alonso – Click right to see Liverpool’s best signings of the Premier League era – One of the central stars of Liverpools Spanish revolution under boss Rafa Benitez, the managers biggest mistake as Reds boss was to allow the classy midfielder to leave for Real Madrid, a loss which proved devastating to Liverpools form as they drifted away from title contention. Boasting the composure and skill to dictate the toughest of clashes, Alonso was part of a world-class trio with Javier Mascherano and Steven Gerrard which proved one of the worlds best midfield triumvirates. Its a great compliment to the Reds that he went on to become one of the worlds leading central players, starring for not only Real but a Spain team which dominated international football over the course of three major championships. 11 6. Gary McAllister – Click right to see Liverpool’s best signings of the Premier League era – He may have only played two seasons on Merseyside, but the evergreen Scot rightly went down as a Anfield hero for the impact he had in his short spell at the club. A FREE transfer from Coventry at 35 years old his arrival was not met by a lot of excitement by supporters but Gary Mac soon won them over, with his experience playing a key role in Liverpools treble-winning 2000/01 campaign. Famed for his stunning 40-yard winner against derby rivals Everton, McAllister was also the best player on the field as the Reds collected the UEFA Cup, scoring a penalty and being involved in three of Liverpools other four goals in their 5-4 final victory over Spanish side Alaves. He spent a fine second season at Anfield before re-signing for Coventry as player-manager. 11 11 11 Click the arrow to check out our list of Liverpool’s best Premier League signings 11 11 9. Dietmar Hamann – Click right to see Liverpool’s best signings of the Premier League era – Two-time League Cup and FA Cup winner, UEFA Cup winner and Champions League winner. Need we say more? The German midfielder encapsulated everything his compatriots are famed for cool-headed, efficient and effective. He was a key member of Gerard Houlliers treble-winning side, starting all three cup finals, and also played a vital role when he came off the bench at half-time in Liverpools famous 2005 Champions League final victory, defying the pain of a broken toe to make a match-winning impact. His final appearance ended in more silverware, Hamann coolly scoring from the spot in the Reds dramatic FA Cup final shoot-out victory over West Ham. 2.Fernando Torres – Click right to see Liverpool’s best signings of the Premier League era – More widely known now as the £50m flop, its perhaps easy to forget how good Torres was before he swapped red for blue. The Spaniard was simply magnificent in a Liverpool shirt after joining from Atletico Madrid in a club record £20m deal. A natural finisher, he seemed able to stick the ball in the net from anywhere around the box. He and Steven Gerrard seemed to read each others minds as Torres terrorised defences with his scything runs and clinical strikes. His rampant goalscoring shot Liverpool to within four points of Premier League glory in the 2008/09 season, finishing runners-up to rivals Man United, and he became the first player since Robbie Fowler to net 20 league goals in a season in his first year with the club. He devastated fans, as well as captain Gerrard, by sealing a £50m move to Chelsea, but will always go down as one of Liverpools greatest goalscorers. 8. Philippe Coutinho – Click right to see Liverpool’s best signings of the Premier League era – The Brazilians arrival went under the radar as modern signings go, but after two brilliant seasons he was named in last seasons PFA Team of the Year Coutinhos £8.5million move from Inter Milan is seen as one of the most shrewd signings in recent years. Not famed for his out-and-out goalscoring ability, the affectionately named Little Magician has dazzled Anfield with outstanding vision and playmaking ability. Thats not to say hes been a letdown in the goal department, with Coutinho netting a series of stunning long-range goals. Hes turned into a genuine match-winner in his short spell for the Reds, and theres plenty of time for the 23-year-old to improve even more. Frightening. 11 11 1. Luis Suarez – The Maestro – There could only be one, couldnt there? An inspired deadline day buy from King Kenny, Suarez was simply one of the brightest stars the Premier League has ever seen. Liverpool were closest to ending their wait for a top-flight title with Suarez spearheading their attack, though the Uruguayan didnt come without his demons. Truly a box office player, the striker donned his managers famous with No.7 shirt with distinction, plundering 82 goals in 133 games for the club. His exit may not have been the most well handled, with a series of unsavoury incidents souring his time on Merseyside, but Liverpool are yet to replace him and are unlikely to find another frontman of his phenomenal talent for some time. He was so much better than anyone else in the league, that he truly deserved to move on, and winning the treble in his debut Barcelona season is testament to that.
