As Rafa looks at alternatives to Gareth Barry, this source suggests that he is considering a move for a Wigan Athletic man, but why?

Liverpool Football Club have been linked with a move for Wilson Palacios
The Honduran international is proving to be a huge hit at Wigan Athletic, and Rafael Benitez is believed to be lining up a £6million offer for the player as he accepts defeat in the chase for Gareth Barry.
Palacios, 24 years old, was superb at the weekend despite the Latics going down at West Ham United, and Steve Bruce admits he could struggle to keep the midfielder.
“The window can’t close soon enough as far as I am concerned because, if he carries on playing like that, it won’t be long before a lot of clubs are after him,” said Bruce.
“He’s a top, top player and we could struggle to hold on to him.” (Fansfc.co.uk)
Whilst I rate Palacios, he really isn’t the kind of top-quality player I would expect Benitez and Liverpool to be shopping for. Yes, at that price he is relatively cheap, but does he offer an improvement on what is already on the Anfield books? Steve Bruce talks of his Honduran international as though a move is imminent, as does this source, but I have to say I am not convinced it will happen! Do Liverpool fans think that Wilson is the kind of player that is likely to make an impact at the Merseyside giants?
