Rafa Benitez is once again linked with a move for this impressive 23-year-old international, and this source suggests that a Merseyside squad player could be used as a makeweight in any potential deal.
Everyone and their uncle it seems are after Diego of Werder Bremen and the latest team after his services are Liverpool who according to the German newspapers have offered cash plus Yossi Benayoun for the player.
Diego who has flourished for Werder Bremen has been reluctant to move but has become disgruntled recently and if Liverpool do come in for him he would certainly be interested, he is a fan of the team and wants to play in the premiership.
It is thought that Liverpool will struggle to raise the cash even with Benayoun thrown in which could leave the door open for either Man City or Tottenham. (footylatest.com)
Rafa has been linked with a move for Brazilian international Diego for a good 18 months now, and the Werder Bremen man continues to impress for the Bundesliga side, scoring ever frequently from his attacking midfield position (he has now managed an astonishing 32 goals in 72 league matches). The former Porto and Santos man would set Liverpool back around £14m, and surely the club could make such a fee off the back of selling squad players such as Yossi, Pennant and Voronin. He would be a fantastic addition, and one who could operate perfectly in the midfield or indeed behind Torres if Keane is off-form. Do Anfield supporters like the look of this free-scoring midfield maestro?
