Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez is ready to pour all his energy into prising Samuel Eto'o away from Barcelona.

Liverpool would have to cough up roughly £28m in wages on a four-year deal at £135,000 a week — but face competition from both Milan clubs.

A source close to Eto’o told The Sun: “Benitez likes Samuel a lot. Everything is possible for this summer. It will depend on Barcelona’s results as well if they decide to buy David Villa.

“Eto’o is not a player to sit on the bench.”

After a couple of injury-hit seasons Eto’o, 28, is top scorer in La Liga with 25 goals in 25 starts.

The Cameroon striker would normally cost around £35m but crucially for Liverpool has got only one year left on his deal.
