Liverpool man heads for a £6m exit – but should Rafa keep him?

Last night’s own goal was of course hugely embarrassing but it’s worth noting that had John Arne Riise  not been there to clear, then there were a couple of Chelsea players ready to tap in. Also Riise has displayed a high level of ability over his entire Liverpool career, although obviously the last 18 months have seen his performances dip a great deal and therefore it’s no surprise that many top teams want the Norwegian.

There is of course a danger that the 27-year-old’s Anfield career may well become more remembered for that own goal than his amazing 30-yard thunderbolts. I am sure most Liverpool fans will agree that over the 300-plus matches he has taken part in, JAR has done a good job overall and maybe he is worth holding on to? What do Reds fans think?
