A Daily Mail report claims that Espanyol president Daniel Sanchez Llibre has revealed Albert Riera could be on the verge of a move to the Premier League. However he also insists the winger will not be going for cheap with the asking price rumored to be around £16 million.

Llibre has admitted he had received offers from two English clubs, reported by the Spanish press to be Liverpool and Everton.

The Spanish side have fought throughout pre-season to keep hold of their best players, as they had to stave off repeated bids from Benfica for forward Luis Garcia.

‘We have received two interesting offers, both of which are from English clubs,’ he told Spanish newspaper El Mundo Deportivo.

‘What we always do is defend our interests. We won’t sell any player if the bid is not the amount we have asked for.’

‘If they want Albert Riera, they’ll have to pay what Espanyol is asking.’
