Liverpool ready to axe £7 million defender

Liverpool manager Rafa Benitez is ready to axe £7 million summer signing Andrea Dossena. The Italian international has failed to impress since joining the Premier League giants back in July and a January exit now looks a real possibility.

The 27-year old has made just over a dozen appearances for the Merseyside club since arriving, failing to nail down a starting place in Benitez' team. It has ben speculatd today that Dossena could return to Italy during the transfer window, with AC Milan apparently interested in taking him back to Serie A.

The sooner Liverpool get rid of Dossena the better. Since he has arrived at Anfield, he has done nothing to impress me or indeed the majority of Liverpool fans. If Liverpoll could get £5 million out of him they would be doing good and I think Benitez could then use that money to go out and buy a decent left-back because they really could do with one.
