Metro have Liverpool fans looking up here in the Football Transfer Tavern after their latest claim involving Karim Benzema.
The publication seems to think that despite having Mario Balotelli and Daniel Sturridge being at the club, the Reds and their manager Brendan Rodgers are still confident that they can land the Real Madrid star.
Benzema has only recently put pen to paper on a new deal at the La Liga club but still regularly comes in for criticism from the fans and indeed the Spanish press and would consider a move if the right opportunity presented itself.
The move would not take place until next summer however, with Real Madrid and manager Carlo Ancelotti unwilling to fight on three fronts for trophies with only Manchester United loanee Javier Hernandez to lead the line.
As one of our regulars moves over from the pool table to join in with the conversation, they note that it would be nice to see a player move from the Bernabeu to the Premier League rather than the other way around as it normally is!
Liverpool fans. What do you think of a link with Benzema? Do you need another top option up front? Let us know your thoughts below.
