Benitez not interested in Joaquin
Joaquin
Joaquin has indicated he is keen in a move to Liverpool
Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez has insisted that he does not want to sign Real Betis winger Joaquin.

Reports in Spain suggested that the 24-year-old's agent watched Liverpool play Chelsea as a guest of Reds chief scout Paco Herrera last weekend.

But Benitez said: "These stories are false. The agent did not come and we have never made any offer or suggested other players as part of a transfer.

"We are not interested in bringing the player to Anfield."

Benitez believes the rumours may be designed to secure a transfer for the Spanish international.

He added: "I can only assume that people in Spain are trying to move the player out of Betis."
