What must Rickie Lambert be thinking right now?
Lambert moved to Liverpool from Southampton over the summer for about £4m, however the former England international striker has been unable to get a chance to impress, even in the absence of Daniel Sturridge through injury.
Lambert’s backseat role at Anfield has played out as Mario Balotelli has struggled to hit the high notes in his early weeks on Merseyside, and now the Star peddled news that the Reds have moved to sign Arsenal target Karim Benzema from Real Madrid.
Liverpool are edging closer to signing Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema.
Sources in Spain claim that the northern Irishman has held talks with Real chiefs, and they have told the former Swansea boss that he can sign the Frenchman for £38.8m.
