Benitez ponders offer for Turner

Michael Turner
Turner joined Hull from Brentford in July 2006 for just £350,000

Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez has hinted that he is interested in signing Hull City defender Michael Turner.

Benitez has a number of injury worries in defence and saw Jamie Carragher limp off in the first half of Saturday's 2-1 friendly defeat by Atletico Madrid.

Speaking after the match at Anfield, the Spaniard said: "I was talking with Hull manager Phil Brown, but I will not talk about figures."

He added cryptically: "Maybe I was just talking to Phil about the weather."

Benitez has been linked with a bid for central defender Turner, as well as Portsmouth's Sylvain Distin.

He is believed to have offered £6m for Turner, with Hull wanting closer to £12m.

But with Sami Hyypia and Alvaro Arbeloa having left Liverpool this summer, injury problems may force Benitez to increase his bid.

Daniel Agger (back) and Martin Skrtel (hamstring) are both doubtful for their opening Premier League game at Spurs next weekend.

On Liverpool's injury problems, which also saw Fernando Torres limp off at the end with an ankle injury, Benitez said: "Carragher twisted his ankle, and we decided to take him off as a precaution.

"We will have to wait to see how the injured players improve, but I feel they will be ready for our next game.

"We have two options. One is to bring in someone at the back and the other option is to keep working with the young players we have.

"Some youngsters need the opportunity to impress, we will see how they go.

"Jamie will come in tomorrow for treatment at Melwood, and we will assess the situation then.

"For a twisted ankle you need two or three days to see how the injury settles down. I do not believe he will need a scan.

"Fernando came off with an slight injury on his ankle, but he also came off as a precaution because this was only a friendly."

Liverpool played most of the match with Spanish youngsters Danny Ayala and Mikel San Jose in central defence against the outstanding Atletico forward Sergio Aguero.

A target for Chelsea, Aguero scored one goal and created a second for Diego Forlan in the first half, with Lucas Leiva replying for late on Liverpool.

Atletico coach Abel Resino dismissed the Chelsea connection, saying: "As far as I know, we have not had any bids for Aguero."
