This source suggests that this former Chelsea man is high up on Rafa Benitez’s wishlist and, if they manage to find the cash for the move, it would be one hell of a coup!
According to reports on Spanish radio Liverpool have made enquiries to the availability of Arjen Robben, neither clubs or the player have made any comments on the matter and Spanish radio shows are notorious for making wild claims but they do on occasions get some scoops and so this report cannot be dismissed out of hand.
Liverpool already have a Dutch contingent at Anfield and it is thought that Robben would fit in particularly well and there is little doubt that previous comments made by Benitez will not interefere with any potential deal.
It is hard to know how Liverpool can raise the funds required without selling a few players but at the same time Liverpool have restructured their finances over the last few months and it may not be as difficult as it was just three months ago.(footylatest.com)
Still only 24, the Real Madrid man is probably not that happy at the club, given the paucity of his chances with the La Liga champions. Amazingly, the Dutch international only managed to complete 90 minutes of league action on three occasions last season, and just once this term. The tricky winger has bags of talent, and is the kind of player who has you on the edge of your seat at every touch. He is the kind of creative talent that would surely be idolised on Anfield, but could this source be correct that Rafa is lining up a bid for the £15m-rated man?
One can only hope that, if Robben did indeed return to these shores, that he has toned down the diving a tad! Do Liverpool fans like the idea of Arjen in a Reds shirt?
