Liverpool Set Sights On £14m Bid for Best Striker On The Planet!

Could this really happen?

The Rumour

Fernando Torres is far too heavily relied on at Anfield and surely Benitez’s main target this summer will be to relieve some of that pressure. As Eto’o showed in the Champions League final, he remains one the world’s top strikers, and with his contract due to expire next summer, Barcelona may be forced to cash in on the Cameroon international.

The Analysis

We are not sure whether the Independent believe this to be a realistic move but perhaps it would be worth Rafa registering the club’s interest in the Cameroonian. Noises coming out of Barcelona has suggested that the club may well consider allowing Eto’o leave but surely such a decision would be crazy?

Samuel is the best striker on the planet right now and the lethal finisher just seems to get better and better and the 28 year old has been linked with a move to Manchester City but surely the former Real Madrid man would rather join a team challenging for honours then simply to earn yet more millions?

After netting 36 goals last season it would be surprising if Pepe Guardiola did indeed consider the Nou Camp without Eto’o and I would have thought they would be doing all they could to get the goal machine to sign a new deal. However there would be no harm in Rafa putting in a cheeky bid as clearly a combination of El Nino and the Barca man would be an astonishing pairing.

The Likelihood

Eto’o to Liverpool: Possibly more than just a pipe dream?
