Rafa Benitez seems keen to bring in a host of new talent so it follows therefore that he is intent on clearing out those who are surplus to requirements, but should that list include both of these?
Newcastle United are being linked with a possible move for £20m rated Liverpool pair Peter Crouch and John Arne Riise.
As Kevin Keegan looks to strengthen his Newcastle squad, there is speculation that he copuld mount a double bid for his old club’s striker Peter Crouch and full-back John Arne Riise. (Goal.com)
Peter Crouch clearly loves the club but he won’t stick around if he a) isn’t wanted by Rafa and b) doesn’t get a fair crack of the whip with more meaningful Premier League starts. Riise is another issue entirely as his time at the club has come to a logical end and whilst he served the Reds well in the past he is now someway below the player he once was. Do Liverpool fans want Rafa B to keep Crouch at the club?
