It is believed that Rafael Benitez is confident of making David Bentley a Liverpool player.

There has been reports that Liverpool are set to make a £12million bid for the 23-year-old winger, claims Kop-TV.

It is known that both Liverpool and Atletico Madrid are in a tug-of-war over the young English winger.

Liverpool are desperately looking for a winger to replace Harry Kewell whose contract is running out soon. Furthermore, Bentley is proven in the Premier league.

The England winger contracts run out in July 2011, which means Liverpool or Atletico may have to fork out a large sum to get their man.

Manchester City and Valencia are among a host of other clubs interested.
