Ian Rush has urged Rafael Benitez to secure the signature of Carlos Tevez this Summer – and also keep hold of Xabi Alonso.

The Anfield legend wrote his views in his regular article in the Liverpool Echo this week.

“There’s no doubt Liverpool need two or three new signings this summer to strengthen the squad.” he said.

“I don’t think anyone has made either of the positions on the left hand side their own.” the Welshman added.

Albert Riera has been tipped by a minority to make a return back to Spain if David Silva is secured from Valencia – and Rush clearly feels the player has not performed consistently enough this term to be assured of a place.

“We also need a different option up front as we’ve relied on Fernando Torres and Steven Gerrard too much.”

“Ryan Babel and David Ngog haven’t proved they are capable of producing the goods on a regular basis so Rafa Benitez needs to bring someone else in.”

“I would love to see Carlos Tevez at Anfield next season and I think he would fit in really well.”

“There is also talk of David Silva or David Villa being up for sale as Valencia have got financial problems – securing the services of any one of those three players would be a massive boost.”

The club’s record scorer also insisted that Benitez needs to keep hold of Spanish playmaker Xabi Alonso – which would reportedly reduce his transfer kitty this Summer, but not according to Rush.

“Xabi Alonso’s future has been the subject of much speculation but I really hope he stays at Anfield.” he said.

“I know the club is very close to his heart and he would be a big loss if he left.”

“I’ve heard some people suggest we might need to sell Alonso to raise cash for signings but that makes no sense.”

“If you are going to replace Alonso with a better player then you would have to spend a lot more money than Liverpool would be able to raise by selling him.”

“We might get £14m or £15m for him but who could we buy for that money who would do a better job?”
