Liverpool transfer news
According to Spanish sourcd Fichajes.net, Benitez is open to returning to his old club as his future with Napoli looks in serious doubt, while Higuain is a long-term target for the Reds.
Liverpool have had a difficult season this year, putting Brendan Rodgers’ position as manager under some scrutiny, while the departure of Luis Suarez to Barcelona in the summer and a number of injuries to Daniel Sturridge have left the team short of quality upfront.
Higuain would no doubt be a useful signing for the Merseyside giants, and it would certainly be a popular move if Liverpool could re-appoint Benitez whilst also bringing in the world class goal-poacher.
Benitez, who has also had a spell in charge at Chelsea, led Liverpool to the Champions League during his first spell at Anfield.
