Liverpool prepare £40m bid for Madrid forward

Karim BenzemaLiverpool fans bring a positive atmosphere to the Football Transfer Tavern as they have reignited their interest to sign Real Madrid’s striker.

According to the Daily Star, Karim Benzema has once again become a target for the Reds with Brendan Rodgers still looking to replace the goals which would have been supplied by Luis Suarez.

The Tavern constantly heard people linking the club to Benzema during the summer but now it appears that the Merseyside club are preparing a £40m bid for January.

This comes after Rodgers was forced to look elsewhere in the Summer after the Frenchman signed a five-year deal at the Bernabeu, leading to Rodgers signing Mario Balotelli.

The Italian international has failed to hit the ground running in Liverpool but did score a crucial goal in their 2-1 Champions League win over Ludogrets.

But a move for Benzema could unsettle the former Manchester City striker as he can be very inconsistent and Rodgers will handle the subject very cautiously as he wouldn’t want to upset his current forward.

Although Madrid’s number nine is said to be unsettled at the Bernabeu despite signing a new deal in August and now the arrival of Javier Hernandez from Manchester United has put his position under threat.
