Mark Gonzalez has stated he intends to join Liverpool, despite a number of Liga clubs being interested in signing him.

The Chilean winger has impressed since joining Real Sociedad on loan in January. His move came about after his work permit application to play in England rejected.

Gonzalez is now hoping to be given the go-ahead from the Bristish Home Office before beginining his new career with Liverpool.

“I am very thankful to Real Sociedad and their coach Jose Mari Bakero, but while they’d like me to stay I’m going to England to join Liverpool,” said Gonzalez.

“I’m waiting until June 30 when I’ll receive my papers authorising me to play and work in England. Obviously, the next step in my career is then to play for Liverpool.

“I have been in touch with Rafa Benitez (manager) and Paco Herrera (coach). They have been always up to date with my personal and professional situation.”
