Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez has a big battle on his hands to land a new winger.

Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez will step up efforts to secure his primary transfer targets after agreeing a fee with Portsmouth for the sale of striker Peter Crouch.

With Xabi Alonso apparently not exit-bound, Rafa may need to find a little more cash to go with the Crouch-selling funds in order to beef up his move for the fantastic David Silva. The tricky winger would be a damn good purchase, but the asking fee may be a little steep. Some are a little concerned about how the slightly-built Spaniard would cope with the physical demands of the English game. Would Silva be one of the Liverpool faithful’s top priority players to chase, or are there others they should be concentrating on?
