UPDATED 27 MARCH 2009:
But Liverpool boss Benitez has ruled out a move for the 23-year-old and told Liverpoolfc.tv: 'We will not be signing him.'
However the Spaniard insists the club is looking at identifying potential targets for next season.

According to the Daily Mail, the form book would appear to favour Liverpool. Not least because they have beaten Chelsea twice in the league this season. But the Champions League form book favours the side that gets to play the second leg at home.
Liverpool won the first two having first travelled to Stamford Bridge, with Chelsea finally gaining revenge last season having first gone to Anfield.
Rafa dismissed the idea that his team were at a disadvantage. 'Hopefully it won't make a difference to us that the second leg is away,' he said. 'We have to think about the first game at Anfield with our fans behind us and look to get a positive result to take to Stamford Bridge.
'We need to make sure we don't make a mistake in the first leg like we did in last year's semi-final. We knew it would be difficult to avoid an English team but we need to approach the two games with confidence. We've done the double over them this season in the league, though these games will be different.'
Chelsea is still a force to be reckoned with, regardless that Liverpool have beat them home & away this season. Though they're the one who must be fretted now, simply because everybody knows how `different' Liverpool is when they play in Europe. Most of them must be feeling a huge relief to avoid the might of Liverpool. At least Chelshit and Barca-loner have expressed their preferences. Well, Barce-loner got their wishes.
Fancy Liverpool will meet Man U in the Final? At least at this point of time, you'll never dream alone for Rome!!!
I'm sure everyone of us had a good time yesterday poking fun at Man U fans. One great loud speaker of Man U in my office was positively shut-off and was advice to jump off the building or the river behind our office. The banters continue while we were watching Datuk Lee Chong Wei's game. Almost everyone rooting for Malaysia and some one at the back... yesss... feels like beating Man U again. Then laughter cracks all around.
But this morning, reality check to every one. It was heaven, it was a hell of a joy we had on Saturday when LFC beat Man U 4:1. But last night, another challenger is also making a progress. Chelsea managed to beat Man City. Albeit by a margin of 1 goal. But a win is a win equals 3 points. This effectively reduce us back to no.3 in the chart. It is simply Chelsea had more goals than us. About 5 goals.
I am a bit alarmed to see all the news reporting, quoting Rafa that LFC can beat anybody now. Yes the momentum is great, the confidence is huge and the hunger is like never before. But reality check is that, not only we have to `pray' for Man U's failure but also fan-off Chelsea's competition. This is 3 prong fight. And it would be a tough fight.
I am not pessimist. Never be, never like it. I just don't want people to get overboard with this win. Lets enjoy the win accordingly. Lets brag to Man U that we beat them 4:1. But do we need to shout that we can win every time? Relax and calm down. Liverpool way is never an arrogance one. We are humble, yet great. We are subtle, yet tremendous. Don't go Mourinho way. Instead of admirers, Chelsea was infested also by haters. Liverpool must not go down the road. We must stay humble.
