Anfield boss keen on bringing another Spaniard to the club.
Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez is reportedly interested in bringing talented Spaniard Jesus Navas to Anfield this summer. The Sevilla winger has been in sparkling form this season helping his side to a Champions League finish as well as clinching a spot in Vicente Del Bosque’s provisional World Cup squad.
The £12m rated one club man has been on the books at Sevilla since the age of 15 and has steadily made himself an integral part of the La Liga club’s plans and has helped the side to two UEFA Cup triumphs and has provided the ammunition for the likes of Freddy Kanoute and Luis Fabiano for a number of seasons.
Rafa is looking for more natural width on the right having used Dirk Kuyt in an unaccustomed right wing role for some time now. Navas can also play out on the left where the likes of Albert Rieira and Ryan Babel have struggled to prove themselves at the Merseyside club.
A number of clubs are reportedly keen on the 24 year old winger but given the abundance of fellow Spanish internationals at Anfield, Liverpool must feel they have a pretty good shot at beating other potential suitors to Navas should he decide the time is right for a new challenge.
