Liverpool face a battle to land top target Christian Atsu with Brendan Rodgers struggling to sort a deal and Benfica are now interested. Rodgers wants to sign Atsu to boost his attacking options and the wide man was said to be close to a switch to Anfield. However since then Liverpool have run into problems with the player's club Porto over a fee. The Portuguese giants are holding out for around £6m and that has led to an impasse over negotiations. The Ghana international 21 wants to leave Porto and could see his wish granted with Benfica now in the chase.
