Meeting arranged between Liverpool target and his club - report

Malaga Stadium

Liverpool have been strongly linked with a move for Guillermo Ochoa.

The representative of Guillermo ‘Memo’ Ochoa is set to meet with his club Malaga in the coming days to talk about his situation at the club, reports claim.

The Mexican international was heavily linked with a number of clubs – including Liverpool – after leaving Ajaccio in the summer and ended up signing for Malaga on a free transfer.

His signing was deemed a real coup by the Andalusian press yet his time in the south of Spain has been somewhat of a disappointment so far.

Struggling to claim a first-team spot ahead of Carlos Kameni, Memo Ochoa has yet to feature in a La Liga game this season and has been restricted to just a handful of appearances in the Copa Del Rey.

After showcasing his talents at the World Cup and being named among the tournament’s best players, that is simply not enough.

As a result, his future at the club has been cast into doubt and reports linking him with a move to Anfield have intensified given the Reds’ current goalkeeping state of affairs.

According to the Spanish publication AS, a meeting is scheduled over the next few days between the club’s general director and Ochoa’s agent Jorge Berlanga to discuss his situation in more detail.

While the report doesn’t specifically mention a transfer, there is a good chance it will be high on the agenda amid the alleged interest from clubs in both Germany and England.

If the Reds feel that they are in dire need of a new shot-stopper this January, then they may not have a bigger indication than to attempt to sign the 29-year-old now.

However, given his lack of match-practice it could turn out to be a big risk to place their hopes of achieving defensive solidarity on the back of a player who has barely touched a football in six months.
