Rafa linked with up and coming star.
Interest is mounting for Brazilian hot property Hernanes who is strongly linked with a move to Italy but has also attracted the interest of a number of Premier League sides. Liverpool are the latest club to be linked with the playmaker in the Brazilian press with claims that Rafa Benitez will replace want-away midfield schemer Xabi Alonso with the talented South American.

Hernanes is a player very much in demand and was voted the most promising young up and coming star in the world by The Times who said of the 24 year old;
“Perhaps the most-hyped South American prospect of last year, the hugely-talented Brazilian is an attacking midfield playmaker, leading to inevitable Kaka comparisons. How long before he moves to Europe?”
The double Brazilian League winner looks very likely to leave Sao Paulo for Europe this summer and now it’s emerged that Anfield could be his destination. He’s been described as supremely talented and with great vision and footballing brain and seems more than ready to cope with the Premier League, but would Rafa make a move for a player without European experience?
Hernanes to Liverpool: Seems to be the talk of the town right now and could well be considered a good replacement.
