Liverpool target Guillermo Ochoa admits to interest in Premier League move

Ajaccio goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa has admitted to being interested in a move to England, with Liverpool reportedly interested.

Ochoa, 28, burst onto the scene in 2004 as an 18 year old with Club America, and over the ensuing seven years, the Mexican established himself as one of the most highly rated goalkeepers in world football - but took the surprising decision to join newly promoted Ligue 1 side Ajaccio.

In a conversely unsurprising turn, Ochoa has been excellent for the Corsican outfit, producing a number of fine displays which have attracted interest from a number of other European clubs, including Ligue 1 rivals Marseille and Premier League leaders Liverpool.

The Reds already have Simon Mignolet in goal, but after some shaky displays this season, it may be a wise idea for Brendan Rodgers to add some more competition for the Belgian. With Ochoa's contract set to expire, the Mexican would be available on a free transfer - and he says he is interested in a switch to England

"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.

"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," concluded Ochoa.
