Liverpool transfer target Jose Enrique could be more than ready to move to Anfield, after it emerged he wants to play for a club that will challenge for trophies next year.
The 25-year-old joined Newcastle in 2007, and has since been with the Magpies as they bounced back from the Npower Championship to the Barclays Premier League, finishing 12th last season.
The Spaniard, who has been linked with Liverpool since April, aired his reservations about his current club on Twitter.
Enrique said: "The club is allowing all the major players of the team to go. Seriously, do you think it is the fault of the players? Andy (Carroll), nobby (Kevin Nolan) etc etc.
"This club will never again fight to be amoung the top 6 again with this policy. They don't want spend in the club (sic) and bring quality players that's why everybody [will] go."
Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish has been on the hunt for a left back for all of the transfer window so far, and the club had reportedly offered Newcastle £15 million to land the Spaniard, who was voted player of the season by Toon fans in 2009-10.
