Malaga midfielder Ignacio Camacho has stated he is ready for a move when the transfer window reopens in the summer and Liverpool are plotting a swoop, the Daily Express is reporting.
The Spanish side have so far kept hold of the 24-year-old holding midfielder but Liverpool along with Arsenal have been keeping tabs on the player for a number of seasons.
Malaga’s money troubles have been well documented and the player himself has now claimed the club would be forced to listen to an offer at a ‘reasonable price’ and moved to express his happiness in the interest surrounding him.
He said: “If I do leave here then I want it to be done well and that Malaga are not angry with me.
“But I also think you need to look at the market and its value in case you leave. We all know Malaga’s situation, which isn’t too bad, but they could be forced to sell for a reasonable price.
“It’s always good when teams are looking at you because it means you are doing things right, both individually and collectively.”
The Spaniard also stated that he would not turn down any moves but negotiations would need to take place with his club first.
Arsenal’s search for a holding midfielder is well known but the emergence of Francis Coquelin has made manager Arsene Wenger think twice about investing in another player.
Liverpool meanwhile have Steven Gerrard to replace at the end of the season and with speculation over the future of Lucas Leiva could make a move come the end of the season.
