Liverpool striker Iago Aspas has hinted he could quit the club in January after becoming frustrated with his lack of playing time.
Aspas, who moved to Anfield over the summer in a £7.7million deal, has found himself fall down the pecking order after failing to score in his first six games for the Reds.
And after saying he was finding life tough with Liverpool last month, Aspas suggests he may have to leave to get regular playing time.
‘I’m finding it hard to be a sub at Liverpool having started games in the past few years,’ he said.
‘When I left Celta Vigo I was aware that to start for Liverpool wasn’t going to be easy.
‘And now the team is winning and we are among the leaders in the Premier League, it’s very hard to get a game.’
Daniel Sturridge and Luis Suarez are Brendan Rodgers’ preferred options in attack, with the manager even changing to a 3-5-2 formation to suit them.
The move doesn’t bode well for Aspas, who says he is desperate to play games so he can force his way into the Spain squad for the World Cup.
‘Now it’s difficult to get in the Spain team because I’m playing less but I’m not worried about that,’ he continued.
‘However, I will try to get in the squad.’
