Liverpool players urge Benitez to sign Newcastle's Owen

Liverpool's senior players want Rafa Benitez to bring Newcastle United striker Michael Owen back to Anfield. The People says Owen spent eight glorious years at Anfield scoring 118 goals in 216 games before leaving for Real Madrid in an £8million deal five years ago. He moved to Newcastle for £16m a year later.

The striker has been consistently overlooked by England boss Fabio Capello who privately believes Newcastle hasn't been the right environment for Owen.

Now, with no transfer fee to pay, top Liverpool players reckon there's no reason NOT to move for Owen - especially as Benitez is short on strike power to support Fernando Torres in attack.

Tottenham and Everton are both watching Owen's situation closely. But if Benitez listens to his own dressing room Liverpool's one-time goal-den boy could make a shock return to Anfield.
