Wigan striker Emile Heskey has admitted he would love a return to Liverpool.
Heskey's impressive form this year has seen him thrust back into the spotlight after a recall to the England side. The striker picked up his 50th cap for his country in Wednesday's World Cup qualifier against Belarus and newspaper reports on Friday linked the 30-year-old with a return to Anfield, four years after he left the club.
"When you are performing well speculation will come around," Heskey told BBC Radio Five Live. "A move to Liverpool would be lovely. Who knows what will happen. Let's see how it goes."
Heskey played over 100 games in his four-year spell at Liverpool under Gerard Houllier, and admits he would not rule out a return to the club, with his contract at the JJB Stadium due to run out at the end of the season.
"Everyone wants to play in Europe at the highest level," he said.
"Everyone knows that I'm in the last year of my contract so speculation is bound to happen. You just have to take it with a pinch of salt and and carry on playing.
"I am just going to keep my options open and give my all for Wigan. In my position I can afford to do that.
"I've been in putting in some good performances and people appreciate that."
