Liverpool target Charles N’Zogbia has revealed he sees current club Wigan only as a ‘stepping stone’ and expects to move on soon.
N’Zogbia was linked with Birmingham during the summer but the Blues baulked at Wigan’s asking price and the Frenchman has gone on to become the Latics’ best player this season.
Liverpool have identified the left wing position as a priority for the January transfer window, with new signing Milan Jovanovic not pulling up any trees so far.
And, with Damian Comolli being appointing as Liverpool’s director of football strategy, it seems likely a number of French players will be moving to Anfield.
Liverpool will be boosted after the comments by N’Zogbia but Marseille will provide competition for Hodgson’s men.
“Wigan’s just a stepping stone. They know very well I’m not a player who is going to stay at the club,” N’Zogbia told the Daily Star.
“I give 100 per cent on the pitch, but, if there’s a bigger club that wants me, the manager and the president have always told me the door is open for discussion.”
Asked about a move back to France with Marseille, N’Zogbia stated it was “not something you refuse.”
