Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez has been reported to be ready to make a shock January bid for Aston Villa and England international striker Emile Heskey.
Local British newspapers have reported that Benitez is ready to step in and save Emile Heskey’s World Cup dreams.
However it is believed that the deal will only go through if Rafa can get the former Liverpool striker on the cheap.
Heskey has admitted that he will consider his future in January if he continues to warm the bench at Aston Villa.
Benitez has emerged as a potential saviour, who is considering making a cut-price £1.5m bid for him when the transfer window re-opens.
