I was a fan of Jamie Rednkapp when he was a Liverpool player but now that he is a pundit / analyst I do not think he makes the best comments and opinions at times. But this week following the England game against France he came out and said he believes the new Liverpoool owners should sign Karim Benzema from Real Madrid.

We all know that we need a striker to partner Torres or to be cover for him and if we want to be serious and if we have the money for it then we need a big name signing like Benzema. For once I will agree with Jamie Redknapp as an analyst.

Benzema is not getting much game time at Real Madrid and he needs to go to a team where he will play more as his skills and quality deserve that. Benzema is only 22 years old and would fit into the profile the new owners are trying to establish at Liverpool of recruiting young players. The Frenchman is valued at between £15-20 million and for a man of his talent I think it is worth it. If only we had the money to go out and sign him this January but based on reports that we will only spend money in the summer, Benzema may already be scooped up by another club if we wait that long.

What do you think of Benzema if he were to join Liverpool? Would he be the right man to sign?
