Liverpool target Charles N’Zogbia will be sold this summer, should a suitable offer be made, Wigan chairman Dave Whelan has confirmed.

“We have to sell Charles N'Zogbia because he's on the last year of his contract,” Whelan told talkSPORT.

“We can't keep him if a big club comes for him and he does deserve a big club because he's that kind of quality player.

“We would love to keep him and pay him what he wants to stay with us but it's a very difficult situation.

“He's such a great player and we are such a small club sometimes we don't go together.”

According to Metro, Liverpool are considering a swoop for the £7.9 million-rated winger, as Arsenal enter the race for Aston Villa’s Stewart Downing.

Liverpool had made a bid of around £15 million for Downing last week, but reports on Sunday suggest the Gunners are planning to make an approach of their own.

It has been suggested that this may encourage Liverpool to focus their attention on N’Zogbia, in order to avoid a bidding war with their Barclays Premier League rivals.

Villa have also been linked with the 25-year-old Frenchman, but he is likely to favour a move to Anfield, should the opportunity to join Liverpool present itself.
