Liverpool legend Ian Rush has backed the club's bid for Manchester United striker Carlos Tevez.

In his column for the Liverpool Echo, Rush wrote: "I would love to see Carlos Tevez at Anfield next season and I think he would fit in really well.

"There is also talk of David Silva or David Villa being up for sale as Valencia have got financial problems.

"Securing the services of any one of those three players would be a massive boost."
