Liverpool samba target admits interest in 'important' Anfield switch

Published Add your comment

Liverpool winger target Willian has admitted his interest in a move to the Barclays Premier League.

The 22-year-old Brazilian has emerged as a target for a number of top clubs around Europe after a string of impressive performances for Shakhtar Donetsk, and the player can't hide his desire over a move to England.

"The Premier League is really, really strong. That's why so many Brazilian players want to go there," the forward told the Daily Mirror.

"It is flattering to hear teams such as Chelsea and Liverpool could be watching me.

"Every time I get the chance I watch Liverpool. They are a very important club and a lot of players would jump at the chance to play for them."

A product of the Corinthians youth system, Willian joined Donetsk in 2007 on a five-year deal and has gained experience in the Europa and Champions League during his time in the Ukraine.


A former Brazil U20 international, Willian is one of a number of wingers linked with a move to Liverpool as Kenny Dalglish looks to make a number of personel changes in the summer.

Ashley Young, Matt Jarvis and Eljero Elia are three other names to appear on the Anfield radar as speculation reaches fever pitch with regards to a Reds move, and it appears a certainty that Liverpool will make a move for a player in the position.

A left back and central midfielder are also thought to be high on the agenda for Dalglish, who will look to put his own stamp on the Liverpool side should he sign an extended managerial contract with the Merseysiders.
