A move to Anfield just may well suit Merseyside club and Eastlands wideman down to the ground.
Manchester City trio Martin Petrov, Sylvinho and Benjani will all leave the Premier League club this summer.
Injury-hampered Bulgarian winger Petrov, 31, was signed by then manager Sven-Goran Eriksson in 2007 but only managed 57 starts, scoring 15 goals.
Brazilian defender Sylvinho, 35, signed on a one-year contract last August but only made nine starts.
Benjani, 31, who arrived in 2008, scored the winner on his debut in a 2-1 away derby win over Manchester United.

Whilst Benjani could well be something of a lost cause, one Premier League goal in two and a bit years, and Sylvinho, aged 97, may be past it, Martin Petrov is a player well worth considering bringing to Anfield. Given our problems with natural width and the inability of Albert Rieira or Ryan Babel to make the position their own, the left sided Bulgarian international may be worth bringing in.
Now a free agent the 31 year old has had some problems with injury over the past couple of seasons but did shown sparks of his usual free flowing self at the beginning of last season where he was effective and managed to net four times in eight starts. The arrival of Adam Johnson effectively ended any hopes he had of convincing Roberto Mancini of his worth.
With Rafa gone its hard for us to even consider making moves. Being without a boss for any prolonged period of time could set us back when it comes to maintaining some stability at a club that has been in a maelstrom ever since Tom Hicks and George Gillett arrived.
I was not happy to see Rafa leave but we need to move on and our two main objectives should be to find a solid new boss and to pressure our American owners into leaving, anyway I digress, this article was about Martin Petrov.
The former Atletico Madrid man has previously been a target of many clubs and was indeed a Benitez target many moons ago but there is no reason to think that just because he has passed 30 that he can not do a job. Obviously if we had to pay a heap of money for his services then the equation of risk would be different, but he would cost us nothing and would probably not command an astronomical salary either.
What do my fellow Liverpool fans think?
