Wigan boss Roberto Martinez is keen to retain the services of reported Liverpool target Hugo Rodallega.

The Colombian striker will be allowed to leave the DW Stadium next summer for nothing, should he fail to agree a new contract with the Latics.

And, although Rodallega is alarmingly out of sorts, Martinez hopes he can persuade the 26-year-old to remain with Wigan, despite alleged interest from Liverpool.

"I wouldn't like to lose Hugo," said Martinez.

"The reality is he had a little bit of a stop start season and niggles.

"It is important everyone is fully focused to win games for Wigan and I would love to keep Hugo for the longer-term."

It is claimed Kenny Dalglish has been monitoring the situation of Rodallega as he stalls over a new deal, and a January bid for his services has been mooted.

Meanwhile, Liverpool are reported to have agreed to sign highly-rated teenager Jordan Ibe from Npower League One side Wycombe Wanderers.

The youngster has also been courted by Chelsea and Tottenham, but is seemingly set to move to Anfield.
