With Rafa trying to accrue funds for some large bids for top notch players, it’s not surprising that squad players are being linked with moves away. However, this particular rumour does seem a little far-fetched.
Everton Football Club are planning a cheeky bid for one of their rivals players.
The man in question is Israel’s international midfield player Yossi Benayoun, who signed for Liverpool from West Ham United two years ago in a deal worth around £5million.
The 28-year-old has thus far failed to nail down a regular starting place in Rafael Benitez’s side, and has been included thirty times in the two years he has had on Merseyside.
It is now being rumoured that David Moyes will make a cheeky enquiry for Benayoun as he looks to bolster his midfield, and if given any encouragement, will offer around £3.5million. (fansfc.com)
First off, Yossi cost £5m last season and given his solid efforts, his value should have increased. Benitez may want money but he isn’t going to be held to ransom for it. The former West Ham man had some great moments last season, and scoring two hat-tricks from midfield is some achievement in your first season at Anfield, regardless of the opposition they came up against.
However, it is fair to say that the Israeli will probably never be a first-team regular, so a move away could occur, but it may be that Yossi is happy to play a squad rotation role. Do Liverpool fans think that Rafa should keep Benayoun?
