Following Sunday's Carling Cup triumph, Liverpool are set to invest heavily in continuing what director of football Damien Comolli has called a very interesting project.

And if certain stories are to be believed there could be some very interesting names arriving at Anfield in the summer.

The Daily Mirror reports that Eden Hazard, Javi Martinez and Seydou Keita are all transfer targets for manager Kenny Dalglish and Comolli in bolstering the Liverpool team for next season.

We already know that there are big players who want to join us next summer because they believe in the project, Comolli told Sky Sports.

Everybody in Europe knows what Liverpool football club are trying to do.

Obviously the fact that we're back playing in Europe and we've won the trophy, it's all positive things.

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.

While these are strong words of intent from the Frenchman, currently Liverpool only have a Europa League place; a small consolation to the top players around Europe for whom the Champions League is the only place to play.

It is hard to envisage Hazard, one of the most sought after young players in Europe right now, joining a club that is not involved in soccer's premier competition.

Although Hazard has said he favors a move to England if, as expected, he leaves Lille in the summer, his first choice is believed to be Tottenham. The North Londoners currently sit in third and look very likely to claim a Champions League spot.

Like the Belgian, Javi Martinez would be a superb signing for Liverpool, though without the lure of Champions League soccer, they could find it hard to entice him into a move.

The sitting midfielder is equally adept at breaking up opposition moves as he is at being the instigator for his own sides' attacks. A star for Spain at U21 level, the 23-year-old Athletic Bilbao star has already earned seven caps for the senior side.

Martinez could conceivably form part of a robust, yet technically proficient, defensive midfield pair with the currently injured Lucas Leiva next year.

Of the three Seydou Keita is the most attainable if Liverpool are unable to break into to the Premier League's top four at the end of the season. The Malian international is far from a regular at Barcelona and a move could be good for all concerned.

In a busy day of transfer speculation at Anfield, highly-promising Swiss youngster Granit Xhaka is also rumored to be interesting Liverpool. The 19-year-old Basel midfielder will be watched by Anfield scouts for the second time in a week when Switzerland take on Argentina on Wednesday, according to the Metro.
