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 Ã‚Â£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.
Ã¢â‚¬ËœWe have received two interesting offers, both of which are from English clubs,Ã¢â‚¬â„¢ he told Spanish newspaper El Mundo Deportivo.
Ã¢â‚¬ËœWhat we always do is defend our interests. We wonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t sell any player if the bid is not the amount we have asked for.Ã¢â‚¬â„¢
Ã¢â‚¬ËœIf they want Albert Riera, theyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll have to pay what Espanyol is asking.Ã¢â‚¬â„¢
