Wigan Athletic chairman Dave Whelan has revealed their have been several inquiries for winger Charles N'Zogbia.

The French international is expected to leave the DW stadium after an impressive season in the Premier League where he helped The Latics stay in the top flight on the final day of the season.

But Whelan admits that a week after retaining Roberto Martinez at the club, keeping N'Zogbia may be a thankless task, which may open a move to Liverpool.

"There is quite a lot of interest in Zoggy. He has said to me I've enjoyed my time at Wigan but I want to move on to other things," Whelan told the Wigan Evening Post.

"He's very proud now of playing for France again and he feels a bigger club would be better for him for selection for France, for which we have to agree and I've said we will not stand in his way.


"If a player comes in saying he's unhappy playing for Wigan Athletic, I want to move - I'm not going to say you can't move. I'm going to say okay, we'll put you on the list, try and find you a club, as long as we get the right fee, we're going to let you go.

"If people want to employ someone, they should have the right to do that."

Liverpool are the favourites to land the winger after N'Zogbia claimed he wanted to play for a club with the potential to play in the Champions League.

However, before trying to land the Frenchman, Liverpool will first see how bids for Stuart Downing and Ashley Young go.
