Metro have a shocking claim for us here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they have claimed that Liverpool are keen on landing Real Madrid forward Karim Benzema.
The French forward is currently playing his trade in Madrid, and has never really impressed the media, fans and indeed his various managers.
Jose Mourinho made it clear how little faith he had in Benzema at times – and now it seems that Benzema could well be on his way to England.
One of our punters notes that this is particularly intriguing if you consider the fact that Benzema could well be involved in a swap deal, with Real Madrid known fans of Luis Suarez – and keen on bagging him this summer.
Of course, should Los Blancos offer Karim Benzema and cash as part of that deal, it could well be a goer. Some of our punters think that Liverpool and Brendan Rodgers should do everything they can to hold onto Suarez and keep building their team back up to its former glory.
Should the Reds get into the Champions League next term, it will be vital to have Suarez, and he could even push them closer to the Premier League title.
Is King Karim heading for Anfield this summer? Let us know your thoughts below.
