Liverpool offer £7M for Ajax's Babel

The Independent says Babel, 20, has attracted interest from all over Europe but it seems Rafa Benitez, the Liverpool manager, wants to make him the club's second significant signing of the close season after Fernando Torres.

The player impressed in the Netherlands Under-21 team who won the European Championship on home soil last month and is regarded as the best of a crop of outstanding young Dutch talent.

Ajax have not yet accepted Liverpool's bid for Babel, but it is close to their valuation of the striker.
