Liverpool after £14m man: This could be Rafa’s second-best buy ever (after Torres)

Once again Rafa is eagerly pursuing British talent and this particular player has an awesome future ahead of him! It’s a signing that I truly believe would be a great one for the Merseyside club.

Rafael Benitez will launch another bid for Manchester City’s £14m rated midfielder Michael Johnson in the summer. The Liverpool boss has the England Under-21 star firmly in his sights as he bids to build for the future. (Daily Mail)

The 20-year-old midfielder looks to me like the real deal. I have always been impressed by his determination and maturity and he is just the kind of youngster Benitez needs to bring to the club to help push the club further in the future.

Sven will obviously try his utmost to keep the kid at the club, but will it work? Man City are a huge club who appear to be going in the right direction – but will the lure of immediate Champions League football trump the possibility of it in the future?
