They are pretty close to having a team and squad that will challenge for the title this season but one signing that really could be the icing on the cake and he could be had for £10m!
Liverpool are planning a £10million January raid on Premier League rivals Tottenham Hotspur for their defender Gareth Bale, according to The Sun.
19-year-old Welsh International Bale joined Spurs from Championship side Southampton last summer for an initial £5million fee that could double depending on the teenager’s progress at White Hart Lane. However, Bale has had limited opportunity at Tottenham due to injury, but has impressed in the Premiership when appearing for the North London side. (Premiershiplatest.com)
I think it would be fair to say that Andrea Dossena hasn’t set the world alight since he moved to Anfield and with Aurelio being woefully inconsistent (although good against Chelsea today) a move for a player of the talent of Gareth Bale could well be a clever one. The Tottenham player is amazingly still without a league win after 18 months at White Hart Lane and could be persuaded to leave if a sufficient bid was forthcoming from Rafa. Having managed to snare Robbie Keane from the north London side Benitez has proved that a move for one of the stars at the club is more than plausible so perhaps the growing speculation will produce an actual bid from the Anfield outfit. Do Liverpool fans see Bale as the kind of player who could push the club even nearer to that elusive title?
