Rafa is again refusing to give up on a target and is reportedly about to put in a bid for this very promising wide man.
Rafa Benitez is expected to up his attempts in signing Newcastle United’s James Milner according to reports in The Times.
Benitez is understood to be in the hunt for a wingman, after being previously linked with the likes of David Bentley and David Silva, but as of yet he is still yet to sign anyone, which has sparked rumours that the St. James’ winger is a £7million target once again.
Milner, 22, has been at Newcastle for four seasons since his switch from Leeds United, and is said to be looking for a move to a club with more silverware opportunities. (Kop-tv.com)
Milner is a player who is yet to fulfill his potential, although he does have a great deal of talent to offer. This could be a very wise purchase indeed for the Anfield outfit. Keegan is reportedly not going to let him leave for anything less than 10m, which is still a bargain by today’s standards. He has a wealth of experience for someone who is still so young.
The former Leeds man already has 200+ appearances to his name and a move to Merseyside could finally earn him the plaudits that could lead to a first full England cap. Do Liverpool fans think that a move for Milner is a much better investment than the likes of Silva and Bentley, or is the danger that he becomes little more than another squad player?
