Liverpool are planning a £7 million bid for Blackburn Rovers striker Roque Santa Cruz.

"I'm enjoying the games and every goal I score is important for the team, but we want to play in Europe so we need to keep winning games," revealed Santa Cruz, with Rovers currently just two points off sixth place.

It is now being reported that Rafael Benitez will make a £7million bid for Santa Cruz and that he will partner Fernando Torres, says the Daily Post.
