Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez hopes to land Barcelona striker Samuel Eto'o for £12 million.

The Daily Mail says Benitez is being linked with a £12million summer move for Eto'o after the Barcelona striker refused to commit himself to the Nou Camp beyond a contract that runs out at the end of next season.

Inter Milan are monitoring the 28-year old's availability but are expected to drop out of the race if they complete the signing of Genoa frontrunner Diego Milito.
