Wigan Athletic midfielder Charles N'Zogbia has paved the way for a summer move to Liverpool after admitting he is seeking a bigger club reports

The 25-year-old Frenchman was speaking on international duty after being handed a recall to Laurent Blanc's squad following a fine end to the season with the Latics.

"It is true that over the last two years at Wigan, our goal has been to stay in the Premier League and it is tough and it has been a bit detrimental to me," N'Zogbia told Sport France.

"I have one-year left on my contract, and after two-years I think the coach and the owner are satisfied with what I have produced.

"Now they know that I want to sign with a bigger club, with bigger goals who can play in Europe and also help me with France."


Liverpool have long been linked with a move for N'Zogbia, and following the latest developments it is anticipated that Reds manager Kenny Dalglish will renew his interest again this summer.

Under the new ownership of Fenway Sports Group, Liverpool have shown their ambition by spending big in the January transfer window, and it is highly expected there will be further Anfield arrivals over the coming months.

With Liverpool keen to strengthen in their wide midfield department, a move for N'Zogbia is a realistic possibility with the club's aspirations likely to appeal to the wantaway Wigan star.

"A big club for me is one that plays in Europe, and which has the goal of winning the title," N'Zogbia continued.

"I left France at the age of 18, and I have been in the Premier League for six or seven years and I have evolved in the Premier League, I am familiar with that and I have learned the customs of that league and I feel good."
