Liverpool close in on bargain buy: Looks like a decent signing

It appears that Rafa Benitez is getting nearer and nearer to picking a new right back on a free.

Liverpool are a step closer to landing Borussia Dortmund fullback Philipp Degen on a Bosman.
The 25-year-old is believed to be signing for Liverpool on July 1 after his contract with the Dortmund comes to an end. (various)

The 25 year old appears to be more of a squad player than a spectacular signing especially as Rafa has a number of players to pick from in that position. However does this signing mean that Rafinha is no longer a potential target? What do Liverpool fans think?
