Celtic full back Emilio Izaguirre has admitted he's 'flattered' by Liverpool's interest in his services.

Reds boss Kenny Dalglish has been heavily linked with a move for the Honduran in recent months, although faces competition from Aston Villa, Manchester United and Arsenal in the apparent race for Izaguirre's signature.

Winner of the SPL Players' Player of the Year, the former Motagua left back has been earning rave reviews north of the border for a string of impressive displays in Glasgow.

English interest hasn't taken long, with Liverpool emerging from the pack as front-runners for the player's signature.

After flying back to his homeland for the Gold Cup, the 25-year-old admitted he was aware of the Reds' interest, although was leaving all the details down to his agent as he tried to focus on international duty.

"It is flattering for any player of course, when somebody like Liverpool shows an interest in your services. I still do now know anything, I leave this in the hands of my agent and club officials," he told La Tribuna.

"I am happy to be back home, it is always good to be back and thank God it comes after a great season. Now my aim is the national team and I am happy to be selected, I will have a few days off and then I will be ready for Honduras."


The Merseysiders are thought to be in the market for a player in Izaguirre's position, with Liverpool looking to replace Paul Konchesky, who appears certain to leave Anfield.

Jose Enrique, Fabio Coentrao and Taye Taiwo have all been linked with a move in recent months, and Dalglish appears to have options going into the market.
