Malaga goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa, who was Mexico's star during the World Cup, will reportedly be headed for Liverpool in January.

The 29-year-old is rather disappointed with his current stint at the La Roselada, featuring only once between the sticks in all competitions, as manager Javi Garcia prefers Cameroonian Idriss Kameni.

His lack of first-team participation is hurting his chances with his national side, having been benched against Belarus in November in a friendly.

Ochoa helped El Tri reach the round-of-16 with his tremendous saves, only losing to eventual semi-finalists - the Netherlands.

ESPN Spanish journalist Jorge Ramos suggested on social media that the Merseyside outfit will be willing to shell out £3million for the former Ajaccio man.

"According to reports the #Liverpool would pay £ 3M by signing Guillermo Ochoa. Simon Mignolet and Brad Jones unconvincing," he tweeted.

Segun reportes el #Liverpool pagaria £3M por el fichaje Guillermo Ochoa. Simon Mignolet and Brad Jones no convencen.

Meanwhile, it remains a question whether Reds no. 1 Simon Mignolet will still remain at Anfield, as he continually fails to live up to expectations, and was even dropped in their recent Premier League fixture against Manchester United.
