The hot news of the day is really more of a continuation, that Rafa Benitez is set to ship out 50 million odd worth of deadwood from his squad to help finance additional purchases. Benitez should have at least another 15-20 million to spend from his usual transfer kitty which means he could (should) be looking to bring in 3 more big name, big money signings to take Liverpool to the top.
Yet the names thrown around so far are less David Villa or Ricardo Quaresma, and more Philip Degen and Andreas Dossena. Even taking into account the likes of David Bentley and Gareth Barry who have also been linked, the list doesn’t really seem like the kind of world class inspiration that the side seem to be calling out for in order to truly compete for the very top. More ‘good’ squad players may only be a sideways step.
So with such a huge transfer kitty being constructed, who makes your list of 3 more ‘Torres” if Benitez does decide to throw some cash at the problem? David Villa? Daniel Alves? Ricardo Quaresma? Emile Heskey?
