Rafael Benitez will launch a £30m double raid on Gareth Barry and Aaron Lennon this Summer, according to The Daily Mail.

And Benitez will waste no time in exercising his new transfer controls by using the money recouped from Robbie Keane’s return to Spurs to make moves for new faces.

The Spaniard is eager to finally land Barry after a failed move last year and also wants Lennon to add more to the wide areas. Plus, there are targets in Spain being pursued.

Now his new deal has been inked, the Kop boss has made getting Steven Gerrard and Fernando Torres on new contracts his first priority.

With two years remaining on his current contract, Gerrard will be offered a slight increase on his current £100,000 a week wage. Also, Torres will be given new terms after blasting Real Madrid and Manchester United last week.

The former Atletico Madrid striker is currently on a £70,000 a week deal with four years remaining. But he will be offered an extension with a £20,000 increase in pay.

Jamie Carragher, Dirk Kuyt, Daniel Agger and Alvaro Arbeloa will also be offered fresh terms to keep them at Anfield for the long-term.

Once those situations are resolved, Benitez will move for the targets he feels can help land Liverpool’s first title in nineteen years.
