Its been reported that Valencia are preparing to admit defeat and sell off some of their top quality players in order to balance the books and apparently Rafa is eagerly watching proceedings!
Spanish La Liga side Valencia CF may be forced to sell some of their best players this summer, with Tottenham Hotspur, Chelsea and Liverpool said to be ready to make a move for La Furia Roja star striker David Villa, with David Silva and Joaquín also possibly available.
After Peter Crouch’s departure to Portsmouth, Liverpool are in the transfer market looking for at least a direct replacement, although reports have also claimed that Villa’s team-mate, wide-man David Silva is also on Benitez’s wish-list.
Benitez has also shown interest in Villa’s teammate David Silva, who is reportedly available for around £16m (€20m). (Premiership latest)
David Silva could be just what Anfield needs, a player who can beat defenders and provide amply ammunition for Torres (and whoever may or may not partner him up front). The price seems reasonable and he seems a better bet than other wide-men also linked with a move to Merseyside. One would have thought that given Benitez’s links with his old club he would have the best chance of persuading the Mestalla outfit to sell. Of all the wingers linked with the club which player most excites Liverpool fans?
