Roy Hodgson has been unveiled as Liverpool manager today and has already drawn up a list of targets to bring Champions League football back to Anfield, according to reports.
Hodgson, who transformed Fulham’s fortunes and took them from the brink of relegation to Europa League finalists, is set to be handed an initial £15 million transfer budget, according to the Daily Mail.
Rafael van der Vaart is also high on Benitez’s wish list and he is also considering raiding Fulham for Arsenal target Brede Hangeland and bringing Cottagers skipper Danny Murphy back to Merseyside.
Hangeland has been loyal to Fulham over the last season, rejecting Arsene Wenger’s overtures but would be tempted to follow his former boss to Anfield while van der Vaart could be deemed as surplus to requirements by new Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho.
