Five World Cup stars Liverpool could sign – not named Jude Bellingham

Ask anyone connected with Liverpool about three controversial years in the early 2000s and they’ll cite El Hadji Diouf as a good example of why buying players after a World Cup can be a bad idea.

Of course that £10 million deal with Lens was in the works before his exploits for Senegal in 2002, but the arrival of Diouf and compatriot Salif Diao is now firmly linked to that iconic run to the quarter-finals. The striker made 80 appearances for the club, scoring eight goals, before being sold to Bolton in 2005.
