Uruguayan's agent confirms Liverpool & Arsenal contact


The agent of Diego Godin has confirmed that he has been in contact with Liverpool, Arsenal and Chelsea regarding the Atletico Madrid defender.

Godin was part of Uruguay's Copa America winning side during the summer, and has impressed with numerous composed displays for both club and country.

This fine form has led the 25-year-old to be frequently linked with a move away from Madrid in recent weeks, and Liverpool, Arsenal and Chelsea have been touted as potential destinations.

And, says Diego Heredia Triguero, the Barclays Premier League trio have been in touch about Godin, although no formal approaches have been made as of yet.

"As I said, Godin is talked about a lot in England, there are clubs like Chelsea, Liverpool and Arsenal who are also quite careful about certain players," he told Calciomercato.com.

"I've spoken a little to all of them. But real negotiations have not yet been launched."

Should Godin move to Liverpool, he would join an rapidly expanding Uruguayan contingent at Anfield, which already includes Luis Suarez and Sebastian Coates.

Meanwhile, like Kenny Dalglish, Andre Villas-Boas is thought to be on the lookout for defensive reinforcements, and Godin could take the place of outbound Alex at Stamford Bridge.

As for Arsenal, however, Arsene Wenger has stated he does not intend to add any more centre-backs to his ranks, following the summer signing of Per Mertesacker and the return from injury of Thomas Vermaelen.
