There has obviously been loads of speculation with regard to who Liverpool will or won’t be signing this summer. Most of this is hogwash, designed to sell newspapers to speculation-hungry punters, although the prospect of Valencia midfielder David Silva arriving at the club seems very real.
None other than The Guardian report that Pool fans might actually get to witness a class act in a wide position next season, with Rafael Benitez firmly in the hunt for the player, who is thought to be available at the princely sum of £20million.
Not exactly small change for a club who need to watch the pennies this summer. Does this mean that players such as Xabi Alonso, Peter Crouch and Scott Carson need to be sold for some decent cash if Benitez is to land his man? John Arne Riise has already pocketed the club a few million but they need more!
