Liverpool want £12m Premier League striker: Would work very well with Torres!

Rafa Benitez has been linked with just about everyone and it was only a matter of time before this hot shot was going to appear the radar

Manchester United and Liverpool are set to do battle for Blackburn Rovers striker Roque Santa Cruz come the opening of the summer transfer window. (various)

It is believed both will make bids in the region of £12 million.

Santa Cruz has been one of the buys of the season and even though he has apparently committed himself to the Ewood Park outfit could he really turn down a move to a Champions League side? Surely a better buy than David Bentley! Would Liverpool fans welcome such a bid? Is there anything to this rumour or do you think it’s mere paper talk?
