Spanish star opens door to Liverpool switch

Liverpool target Javi Martinez could have thrown the door open to an Anfield switch after saying he would be ideally suited to football in the Premier League.

Kenny Dalglish has been linked with the midfielder for a number of months and is thought to have already sent Liverpool scouts to Spain to watch Martinez play for Athletic Club.

The 23-year-old is was quoted by TalkSport as saying football in England is ‘more suitable’ to that in Spain although the Spanish international added he was focusing on the season with Athletic Club: “I try not to pay any attention to all the things that I see or read.

“I am just concentrating now on the end part of the season and just focusing on giving 100 per cent of my thinking and energy to the club.”

Liverpool boss Dalglish is keen to bring some new faces to the club during the summer, and has also been linked with players from a number of other Spanish clubs.
