Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez is planning a bid for Atletico Madrid captain Maxi Rodriguez.

Since his arrival at Anfield, Benitez has struggled to find a solution to the problems on the left-side of his midfield and he hopes Maxi can be the answer, says Marca.

Maxi has maintained this season he is happy at Atletico, but Liverpool could convince the Spanish Liga to sell if the right offer is made.
