Liverpool are reported to be leading the race to sign Willian as Brendan Rodgers looks to make a marquee signing before the close of the transfer window.

Willian's future at Anzhi is in doubt with the Russian club's owner Suleiman Kerimov looking to offload a number of their big earners and a host of clubs have been linked with a move.

Manchester City are reported to have tried to sign Willian from Shakhtar Donetsk prior to his move to Anzhi, while Tottenham and Manchester United are also claimed to be admirers of the Brazilian.

The 25-year-old admits that, if he was to move, his preference would be to head to England and that he would be open to a switch to Liverpool.

"Kerimov told us that Anzhi won't make further investments...Russian players will join and foreign players would be free to go," Willian is quoted as saying on ESPN Brazil.

"He made it clear that if good bids arrive, close to what he paid for the players, that he would certainly help us go.

"There was the Manchester City bid that was turned down. Now I'm waiting for a new bid to arrive in the next days from a few clubs, like Liverpool.

"If it's really Liverpool, then it is surely a great club. I'm hopeful and very calm, just waiting for the best.

"England is my goal. I like the Premier League very much, I enjoy English football and certainly, if that happens, it will be very good for me and for my image.

"I know there have been some talks, but I don't know the values, the agent didn't tell me, he just said there were talks with some clubs, he didn't name them, but I think they are English."

alcao really needs to shine now. Apparently according to the stats, he scores more when played up front alone. I wonder if Van Gaal will actually apply a formation to get the best out of him though.
