"We already know that there are big players who want to join us next summer because they believe in the project," Comolli said. "Everybody in Europe knows what Liverpool football club are trying to do."

Damien Comolli knows you can catch more flies with honey than with vinegar. He thinks victory in the Carling Cup will help LFC capture "big players" in future transfer windows, according to SkySports.
"There's a very positive vibe around the club around Europe. A lot players I know are very interested about joining the project because it's a very interesting project," Comolli said.
Within weeks, the pair began overhauling the squad. They sanctioned the sale of Fernando Torres to Chelsea for a record fee of £50 million ($80 million). That money, plus a lot more, was invested in a rebuilding effort that netted Andy Carroll, Luis Suarez, Stewart Downing, Charlie Adam, Jordan Henderson and Jose Enrique for over £100 million ($160 million).
The quest to restore Liverpool FC to its place atop the mountain of English soccer clubs is now world-famous. The squad is capable of winning trophies, but Comolli and Dalglish know they may need reinforcements to take their brand-name project to the next level.
Liverpool won the 2011-12 season's first trophy on Sunday, lifting the Carling Cup after a shootout win over Cardiff City. It came just 500 days after Fenway Sports Group purchased the team. An early move was to install Comolli as director of football, and hire club legend Kenny Dalglish as manager.
Despite being linked to a number of top players in England and Europe, The Reds were quiet during the January 2012 transfer window. But that may not always be the case.
