Liverpool are said to be chasing Real Madrid's star striker Karim Benzema, according to a report in the Daily Star. Brendan Rodgers is said to be a long time admirer of the 26-year-old, and has previously tried to lure him to Anfield in the past. Some sources are now even suggesting a deal is being 'finalised' for the former Lyon man.

The French striker won't come cheaply though - with Liverpool allegedly tabling a £38m bid for the prolific forward, who has also attracted interest from Manchester United and Arsenal.

Whilst the news of Rodgers' pursuit of Benzema will certainly excite Liverpool fans, many are not too sure of the report's reliability. Here's how fans reacted on Twitter.
