Well it looks like as of Monday Liverpool captured an English player in Glenn Johnson, at a fee reported to be around £17m. He should give us some nice options at the back and I have to say he had a good season last year. He likes to attack and is English, both of which are nice.
I'm not sure where this leaves Arebola for us. Perhaps he will go to Spain - Real Madrid are interested - and if we can get £10m for him I suppose that is a good bit of business.
Personally I didn't think the right-back spot was a weakness for us so I have to say I'm a bit surprised by the move. However I dont' doubt Rafa.
Clearly Johnson is a good player that brings something different to the team. I still think we need a left sided midfielder and another forward to back up Torres but I will leave to Rafa.
Upon signing the defender Benitez said: "Sometimes you have to spend a little bit more. You can't compete in the top four of the Premier League unless you spend some money.
"We were looking for a player of quality and also somebody who is British because of the new Champions League rules. Glen Johnson fits both categories."
