This fantastic wide man is once again on Rafa’s radar, and the Liverpool boss is ready and waiting to bag his man!
Liverpool are ready to step up their interest in Valencia winger David Silva, according to reports.
Reds boss Rafa Benitez announced yesterday that he is keeping a very close eye on David Villa, the Valencia striker who scored four-goals at EURO 2008 last month to help Spain to their first major title in over four decades.
Benitez’s revelation sent up warning signals all across Europe, as many believed the wily Spaniard may have been using Villa – an obvious target, given his link with Fernando Torres for La Furia Roja – as a smokescreen for a more secretive deal.
And in Silva, who also featured prominently in Austria and Switzerland, he has a player who will cost half the price – in both wage and transfer fee – of his Mestalla team-mate and would bring some much-needed versatility to Liverpool’s attack. (goal.com)
David Silva would be an ideal signing for the Rafalution – a player who can be counted on to be the creative outlet that feeds El Nino and his fellow strikers. The Valencia man is a crowd-pleaser, always ready to entertain and not afraid to go for goal at every opportunity. The fact that the La Liga club are in financial difficulties will indeed see them needing to sell one or two of their star performers and maybe Rafa can haggle a bargain from the Mestalla! Do Liverpool fans think that Silva has what it takes to make it in the Premier League?
