Liverpool risk losing their best players if manager Rafa Benitez moves to Juventus.

As well as well-known targets Fernando Torres and Javier Mascherano, the Italian side have also been linked with moves for Dirk Kuyt and Martin Skrtel.

Juve's attempts to land Benitez as their next boss will go to into overdrive over the next few weeks.

Transfer budgets and a four-year contract worth £16million have been discussed with the Spaniard's agent Manuel Garcia Quilon and Tuttosport says Liverpool's stars would also be tempted to move to Serie A out of loyalty to their boss.
