Liverpool have been linked with some sensational footballers over the years.
Of course, the Reds have managed time and time again to secure the services of some of the biggest and brightest names in world football to display their talents at Anfield.
However, there are some players who fans were always longing to see make the switch to Merseyside but never arrived.
And now hundreds of supporters have responded to the ECHO's question on Facebook asking them who was the one player they would have love to have seen Liverpool sign but never did.
One man that received several mentions was David Villa.
Fans such as Stephen Gibson, Kev Kelly and Ryan Bryce revealed that they were desperate to see the striker, who won titles with Barcelona in La Liga and the Champions League plus the World Cup and European Championships with Spain, play alongside Fernando Torres in the 2009 team.
After the European competition win in 2008 Villa said of Torres: "We complement each other very well. We get on well on the pitch and very well off it too. We're a good partnership.
"We both chase down defenders, put pressure on and fight to create chances for each other. We work well together."
Mr Gibson believed the Reds would have won the 2009 Premier League title had Villa arrived to partner Torres at the head of the field.
Cristiano Ronaldo was another player who supporters like Brian O'Shea and Tony Dalton revealed they wished the Reds had secured.
Gerard Houllier revealed in 2017 that Liverpool's wage structure was the reason behind their failure to land Ronaldo.
Houllier was interested in bringing the young winger to Anfield, but was unwilling to offer the then18-year-old the wages he was asking for.
Instead, Ronaldo would sign for Manchester United for £12m in the summer of 2003 and went on to score 84 goals in 196 appearances at Old Trafford, before leaving to join Real Madrid for a then world-record fee of £80m in 2009.
There were also further mentions by fans for former Manchester United goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel.
Rob Johnson believes the history of both Liverpool and United between 1992 and 2002 would have been "totally different" had the Reds signed the shot stopper while Garry Williams said he would have also liked to have seen the Dane between the sticks.
Former Liverpool player and then manager Graeme Souness revealed the Reds missed out on signing Schmeichel when he was in charge at the club.
Souness said that Schmeichel - who won five Premier League titles, three FA Cups and the Champions League in his Old Trafford career - was willing to pay for his own travel and accommodation when he spoke to the club because he was a big Liverpool fan.
However, the deal fell through because Souness did not want a "rookie goalkeeper" as he sought to replace long-serving Anfield stopper Bruce Grobbelaar with David James.
The likes of Manchester City players David Silva and Sergio Aguero were also outlined as players fans would have loved to come to Liverpool and so was Wesley Sneijder.
Of course, with a club the size and stature of Liverpool there are always going to be near misses with fantastic players.
And while none of those mentioned ever made it to Anfield it has not stopped the Reds signing a plethora of world-class talent and that is evident in the incredible team Jurgen Klopp has built that we see today.
