All is well at the Merseyside outfit and at most the club needs a squad player or two in the transfer window and with that in mind this source outlines this Spaniard as on Rafa’s radar.
Rafael Benitez has made a number of raids on his native Spain since leaving Valencia for Anfield in the summer of 2004, with the likes of Xabi Alonso, Fernando Torres and Albert Riera becoming key men.
And The People report that the Spaniard is again lining up a move on La Liga this month, with his target said to be the relatively unknown Deportivo La Coruna winger Angel Lafita.
The 24-year-old is able to play on either flank and although he is a big part of Depor’s side, the Riazor club are believed to be willing to let him move on if an offer of £3million is received. (fansfc.com)
Rafa has already pointed out that he doesn’t expect any big signings in this transfer window so a move for this impressive in form winger could be a very possible foray into the market for the table toppers. Lafita is supposed to be a very impressive prospect who has come to the fore this term with some sterling performances at Deportivo, who he enjoyed a season long loan at last term. He is now considered as close to be called up for the international set up and would surely welcome a move to join the plethora of fellow countrymen at Anfield. Who do Liverpool fans think the club should spend their money on in January?
