Liverpool face a battle to tempt Keisuke Honda to the club after the Japanese star said he wants to play in Spain, according to talkSPORT.

The 24-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to Anfield this summer after impressive display for CSKA Moscow this season.

But with the player wanting a move to la Liga, Liverpool may be left disappointed.

Honda said: "Like any professional I want to prove myself in a big championship at a major level.


"I said several times that I would like to play in Spain, which is a more competitive league."

Standard Chartered, Liverpool sponsors, said earlier in the year that the club should sign more Asian players to help expand the brand, meaning the recruitment of Honda would help develop their global brand.

Furthermore, Honda would ably slot in, in Liverpool's midfield, which is lacking a winger to provide for striker Andy Carroll and Luis Suarez.
