Rafa Benitez wants Inter Milan to make a last ditch bid for Liverpool attacker Dirk Kuyt. Inter have already seen a £30 million offer for Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas thrown out in the last 24 hours.

With time ticking away, Benitez is pushing Inter president Massimo Moratti to buy him Kuyt.

Benitez said: "I've spoken with the president and (Inter technical director Marco) Branca. Although there isn't a lot of time, we hope to do something - otherwise in January we'll bring more balance to the team."
