Liverpool after £20m winger: Surely far too expensive!

Whilst its true that Albert Riera has impressed at Espanyol this past season surely Barcelona’s ‘other’ club is having a laugh with their valuation of the winger!

Espanyol have rejected Liverpool’s £9.5million bid for Spanish international Albert Riera. Liverpool offered £9.5million for the want-away winger. It’s reported that Espanyol are expecting a figure more like £20m.
Espanyol president Daniel Sanchez Libre said, “If a club wants to sign Riera then the price will be 24million euros and that figure will not change.” (Sky Sports)

Whilst Liverpool could do with some creativity on the wings there are surely many others on offer for that kind of money! Do Anfield fans think that the valuation is crazy or is the figure reasonable in today’s inflated market?
