According to the Daily Star, Brendan Rodgers has agreed a £38m deal for Arsenal’s target Karim Benzema, as Mario Balotelli’s goal return continues to dry up.
Arsenal are forever being linked with the Frenchman in the Tavern and no punter would of put their money on Benzema moving anywhere other than the Emirates.
The 26-year-old recently signed a new five-year deal in July, which led to both the Premier League clubs losing interest.
But recent reports suggest the Reds have gone under the radar to capture this world class striker, who has scored 113 goals in 243 games for Los Blancos.
This has got Liverpool fans buzzing as it is not only them from the terraces who are shouting at Balotelli to improve his form, with Rodgers also criticising the Italians form, as he demands him to do a lot more.
The La Liga striker is now weighing up his options and is still yet to agree personal terms but Liverpool will be desperate to tie up any possible move, with Arsenal inevitably going to be breathing over their shoulders, looking to sign him.
