Liverpool: Mexican international fancies summer Premier League move
Liverpool have received a huge boost in their pursuit of Guillermo Ochoa, with the Ajaccio goalkeeper admitting that his future could well lie in England.
The 28-year-old Mexican is reportedly wanted by Brendan Rodgers to replace the outgoing Pepe Reina, who is expected to make his loan move to Serie A side Napoli permanent in the summer.
‘Memo’ Ochoa, who has been capped 56 times by Mexico, has played for French side Ajaccio since 2011, but has now admitted that his future could lie away from Ligue 1,
‘I am evaluating several offers from different countries. I have been in France for three years and I like the way in which this league has evolved, but I would also want to try elsewhere,’ Ochoa said (relayed by the Metro),
‘At the moment I have no agreements with any team and I am willing to listen to all the proposals to make the best decision possible.
‘My agent is dealing with everything and I do not exclude a future in Italy or England.’
Liverpool are closing in on a first Premier League title since 1990, and face a struggling Norwich side this Sunday, before welcoming title rivals Chelsea to Anfield on the 27th April; a game that could well decide the title race.
