Winger looks to Anfield

Spanish winger Albert Riera is hoping he can engineer a move to Anfield and says to reject a switch to Liverpool would be 'madness'.

The Spanish international has fallen out with his club Espanyol and is hoping he can get a move to Liverpool, having previously played Premiership football at Manchester City on loan. Rafa Benitez has long been linked with a move for the player but is thought to be concentrating on his main targets of Gareth Barry and Robbie Keane first - if he misses out on one of them then he could then turn to Riera.

The player himself though is hopeful he can engineer a move, he told the Daily Post: "I know English football and it is an attractive option for players," Riera said.

"If Espanyol do finally receive an offer I do not want to miss the opportunity to go to Liverpool. The option to join a super-club doesn't come every day.

"I am a realistic person but this has given me something to look forward to.

"To reject the possibility of a move would be madness."
