Liverpool boss hints at Bellamy sale

Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez has hinted Craig Bellamy will be the striker to pay the price for Fernando Torres' arrival at Anfield.

The 23-year-old Spain international has completed his move from Atletico Madrid, for a fee believed to be just under £20million, and signing a six-year contract.

With Andriy Voronin also having arrived this summer, speculation has increased about the futures of Peter Crouch and Bellamy.

Asked if Bellamy will be leaving, Benitez said: "Possibly. We have some clubs asking about him and it's a possibility.

"The only thing I can say is that Crouch will be staying with us. I have said to Crouch that he must fight for his position and he will stay with us."
