He’s been strongly linked with Arsenal for some time and Tottenham and Chelsea have expressed interest in the Croat but now it appears that Luka Modric sees Liverpool as a better bet and Rafa looks like a fan so to Anfield he may be heading!
Dinamo Zagreb midfielder Luka Modric has announced his interest in signing for Liverpool. “If Liverpool really want me, then this is fantastic and I am truly honoured. I watched the Champions League quarter-finals and the way they crushed Arsenal. Only the greatest and the best can play such a match against strong Arsenal.” (Vecernji list) Rafa Benitez is believed to rate the 22-year-old highly and may be lining up a bid for the 15m-rated midfielder.
Amidst all the arguing about whether or not Ryan Babel was fouled in the fantastic encounter with Arsenal, it seems that Liverpool have not really been given the credit they deserve for putting Arsene Wenger’s men to the sword. They really were magnificent after a dodgy opening 30 minutes and showed great character to come back from the second equaliser so I can see why Modric may be keen to make the move to Merseyside. The question is, does Rafa Benitez need this type of player or is he already blessed with talented central midfielders?
