Liverpool Transfer Rumours: Kenny To Test Bayern’s Resolve With £12m Bid

By on November 23, 2011

Liverpool are monitoring Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Lars Bender and are preparing a January bid, according to reports in Germany.

The Reds have sent Director of Football, Damien Comolli, to watch the German ace on several occasions and he has now reported back to Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish recommending they step up their interest in signing him.

The 22-year-old moved to Leverkusen three years ago from 1860 Munich and has established himself as a first team regular and has recently forced his way into the German national team.

Bender is contracted until 2014 and Dalglish is ready to test Bayern’s resolve with a £12m January bid, however he may be persuaded to wait until next summer so he can off-load Alberto Aquilani, who is expected to leave Anfield following a disappointing stint on Merseyside.

    we should focus on giving shelvey and henderson more opportunities rather than buying another midfielder imo.

    We dont need a bender in our squad to unsettle a 100% straight squad. Let Man Utd buy him. Theyre squad are full of mincers and benders!

    Can you really trust an article that gets the club name incorrect? Bayern Leverkusen? There are Bayern Munich and Bayer Leverkusen, but no Bayern Leverkusen.

      Calm down, calm down. Simple mistake, which has now been corrected.

    I have been watching this player for sometime. We have so many midfielders so i didn’t see it happening. But now that he is being linked, i’ll say he is a solid defensive midfielder and can be a rock in front of th back four.

    what we realy need is an out an out right winger. a striker too bcoz surely carol isnt one anyone would put money on to win us games. and finaly a CB becoz quite frankly agger wont play half the games left. carra is 33 and basicaly well he is 33 and coates needs at least a couple of more seasons to adapt with wat i have seen of him thus far we certainly couldnt field him against the likes of man u city or chelsea. so kenny should be looking into those crutial areas if we are to stand any chance of top 4 finish

    It’s a good buy at that priceand should be able to displace Lucas immediately.

      Not a chance, obviously you don’t actually watch Lucas play? he’s been fantastic. Amazing how many so called fans are still stuck on the hate Lucas bandwagon
