Liverpool boss Benitez wants Real’s Raul

European Champions League holders Liverpool have set their sights on Spanish forward Raul Gonzalez, who appears to be no longer wanted at Real Madrid, the Daily Mirror reported Wednesday.

The Mirror said Liverpool coach Rafael Benitez, who knows Raul well from his time as Real's B-team coach, wants the 28-year-old to spearhead a new-look attack.

Real are set to off-load several stars in summer and according to the report Liverpool aim to reshape their attack, with Benitez ready to let go of Djibril Cisse, Robbie Fowler and Fernando Morientes.

The Mirror said that Liverpool would join a bidding race for Raul because they believe Real will let him go for a free transfer.

Raul was the only local “Galactico” on the team of Real, for which he has played 12 years. But the record scorer in the Champions League with 51 goals is no longer a regular starter in Madrid.
