This source suggests that Rafa has three positions he wants filled in order to make his table toppers last the distance!
Liverpool’s recent signings have failed to have an impact, with only Albert Riera acquitting himself reasonably well.
Left back Andrea Dossena, who cost £7m from Udinese, will be offloaded back to Italy at the first opportunity.
Right-back Phillip Degen, who was given a £2m signing on fee and £38,000-a-week salary when he joined from Borussia Dortmund, hasn’t featured in the Premier League due to a succession of injuries.
Rafa wants to bring Emile Heskey back to Anfield for £3m, as well as two full-backs to compete with Fabio Aurelio and Alvaro Arbeloa. (News of the World)
I think its fair to say that Dossena has been a big disappointment since his arrival from Serie A and the full back has yet to show anything like the ability he displayed whilst at Udinese, whereas Degen has been unfortunate with injuries he has also not looked anything other than average when he has turned out for the first team. The idea that Rafa might be considering a move for Heskey is surely rubbish and given the source that this originates from I am even more suspicious of such a crazy move occurring! Who do Liverpool fans want Benitez to invest in when the window opens?
