Liverpool target Hugo Rodallega is determined to rediscover his form at Wigan and is prepared to put contract talks to one side as he works on his game. reports how speculation surrounding the 26-year-old Colombian international's future has been building for some time, with Juventus, Sevilla and Atletico Madrid the most recent side's credited with an interest in signing him in January.

"At the moment I can think only about Wigan," Rodallega told The Sun. "I know the club wants me to stay but there is still plenty of time for us to talk.

"There are many rumours about my future but I am focused on saving Wigan. The Premier League is the best in the world. I came here to triumph, not fail."

Reds boss Kenny Dalglish is a known admirer of Rodallega's and is believed to have previously considered an attempt to bring him to Anfield in a bid to further strengthen Liverpool's striking options.

The Latics forward is yet to open his goalscoring account this campaign, and he admits that breaking that duck is his number one priority at this stage of the season.

"Each day I dream about my first goal this season," he continued. "I have never lived through a bad run like this and it's normal that I should be worried.

"What's happened to me is incredible and I'm very unhappy at my lack of goals. I'm not doing anything different - just suffering a very bad run.

"I am a striker and I've not forgotten how to score. I certainly feel for the fans who have supported me so well since my arrival."
