With time running out on the transfer window, everyone is looking at Liverpool to make the wildest signing of the month.
Jurgen Klopp is desperate for a defender and it has led to some crazy speculation over the likes of Shkodran Mustafi, Ben Davies and Aaron Long.
Liverpool have a long history of deadline day signings – and while today could be different – many have come and gone as heroes or villains.
Here at the Daily Star Sport, we have a fine list for your perusal as we take a trip down memory lane.
1. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain
The Ox signed from Arsenal in the 2017 summer transfer window, directly after playing Liverpool, for a fee of around £35m.
And though there have been flashpoints, including some brilliant goals against Manchester City, his career has largely been dogged by injuries.
2. Victor Moses
Chelsea letting the Nigeria international leave for Liverpool struck everyone as odd and he did not do himself any favours with his form.
After making just nine starts for the Reds, he was allowed to return to Stamford Bridge, where he would make further loan appearances for Stoke and West Ham before becoming an integral part of Antonio Conte's Premier League-winning team in 2017.
3. Mamadou Sakho
After being signed by Brendan Rodgers in 2013, the Frenchman never truly took form at Anfield and was often full of mistakes.
When Klopp arrived, the former Paris St-Germain star became even more ostracised and was allowed to leave for Crystal Palace after infuriating the boss following a number of incidents.
4. Tiago Ilori
Another defensive transfer in 2013, Ilori would spend four years at Anfield without making a single league appearances.
Failed loan moves to Granada, Bordeaux and Aston Villa would follow before leaving for Reading on a permanent basis in 2017.
5. Andy Carroll
A classic name whenever Liverpool's deadline day signings are mentioned after a shock £35m from Newcastle in 2011.
After Fernando Torres left for Chelsea, the Reds spent a huge chunk of that money on Carroll – who would, to put it lightly, did not live up to his Spanish predecessor's standards.
6. Luis Suarez
With the remaining money from the Torres deal, Liverpool bought Luis Suarez from Ajax for £15m and not many fans would disagree with that being one of the bargains of the century.
The Uruguay international would go on to score 82 times in 133 appearances before signing for Barcelona in 2014.
7. Craig Bellamy
Perhaps forgotten somewhat due to the mayhem of that day, but Bellamy also signed for Liverpool on the January transfer deadline day.
After already having a stint on Merseyside in 2006, the Welshman was largely deployed as a squad playing during his 18 months at the club before leaving for Cardiff to be nearer to his family.

8. Paul Konchesky
No-one serves up a crueller reminder of the Roy Hodgson era that Konchesky at Anfield in 2010.
A number of poor performances was made worse when Liverpool fans sarcastically cheered him off the pitch when he was subbed off against Wolves, though he would go on to enjoy a five-year spell at Leicester.
9. Albert Riera
A dismal loan at Manchester City was enough to convince Liverpool he was the right man for them on deadline day in 2008.
The Spaniard enjoyed a large role under Rafa Benitez in his first year but quickly fell down the pecking order before joining Olympiacos in 2010.

10. Alvaro Arbeloa
Another Spanish star to sign under Benitez, the defender would enjoy a dependable role from his arrival in January 2007.
However, his most memorable moment was probably his on-field clash with Jamie Carragher against West Brom in 2009.
