Liverpool target open to move !!!

Atletico Bilbao midfielder Javi Martinez has admitted that he would be open to a move to Liverpool after the Reds revealed an interest in the player. The player has impressed Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez in recent months with some terrific displays for the Spanish outfit. The player joined Bilbao last year from Osasuna.

"I see Premier League matches on the television and the atmosphere is wonderful," he told "But I don't really know anything [about the interest] as I haven't spoken with anyone. "My sole mission at the moment is to work hard for Athletic and help the team. "If an offer does arrive I would look at what is best for two parts, myself and Athletic."

Martinez is one of the most highly rated midfielders in Spain at the moment. If Liverpool are to sign the player in January that will almost definitely see the end of Momo Sissoko's stay at the club with Everton, Inter Milan or Juventus the most likely candidates to sign the Mali international. I would be surprised if Liverpool don't face competition for Martinez' signature in January.
