Nokia (NYSE: NOK) might see a jump in market cap should it move to acquire Alcatel-Lucent's (NYSE: ALU) wireless division.

Liberum commented today that the purchase would move Nokia Siemens Networks value to 0.8 times sales, pushing the unit to an overall valuation of €6.8 billion (just over $9 billion). Nokia's current market cap is at $23.6 billion.

Nokia could also garner another €4 billion in cash from the sale of its HERE unit, for a sum-of-the-parts value of €7.4 billion for the unit.

Liberum keeps Nokia at Buy, but raises its price target from €4.5 up to €5.7 per share.
