Liverpool fans are looking up with interest here in the Football Transfer Tavern as the Daily Mirror claim they could well be in for a very good day.
The publication has claimed that the Reds could well be handed another chance in their pursuit of Karim Benzema with the Real Madrid forward’s future still in doubt after an influx of creative talent at the Bernabeu.
Benzema would consider a move away should the opportunity be right and despite being offered a new five-year deal by the club and given the arrival of James Rodriguez, we think Benzema will be thinking long and hard about his future and indeed if he has one at the La Liga side.
Brendan Rodgers is believed to be prepared to take his summer spending to the £100 million mark with a £50 million bid for the former Lyon forward.
Rodgers is keen to bring in a forward that he knows can net the 20 plus goals required to lift them the Premier League title and go one step further next season.
The fact that Benzema is also experienced in the Champions League and is a proven goal scorer at the highest level doesn’t hurt either!
Liverpool fans. Do you think Rodgers will be able to convince Benzema that a move to Anfield is in his best interests? Let us know your thoughts below.
