Surely this is not the ‘senior’ player Rafa said Liverpool have already snapped up!

Ever since Rafa pointed out that he has already signed a player who spoke English but was not English, every Liverpool fan has been speculating about who this might be. And now some very dubious names have been linked with an Anfield move as that ‘senior’ player.

Mathieu Flamini is still stalling on signing a new Arsenal contract and has been linked with Bayern Munich, Juventus and Inter Milan to name but a few, now that Rafael Benitez has already claimed he has three players in the bag for the new season and many are suggesting that Flamini is the ‘senior’ player of those three “signings” (various).

Simply not true as far as I can see. Whilst it’s true that Flamini’s future is by no means certain I am confident that he will sign a new deal at the Emirates and I think the chances of the Frenchman leaving for anywhere else in the Premier League, let alone their rivals from Merseyside, are just non-existent.
