Mehdi Benatia to Liverpool

Despite only signing for Roma last season, it appears that Mehdi Benatia might well be available for transfer this summer.

Chelsea and Manchester City are the two Premier League clubs currently taking an interest - but he would certainly be a good addition at Liverpool.

A lack of depth was the main reason why the Reds' title challenge faltered, but their defence also showed signs of trouble towards the back-end of the season in particular.

If Brendan Rodgers wants to play three at the back, then he certainly needs another option, and even with a flat back four he could do with improving the position.

Whilst Benatia is untested in England, he's now shown in France and Italy that he's a quality player, and at 27 he still has plenty of years ahead of him in the game.
