Fernando Morientes has revealed he has made his mind up to join Liverpool during the January transfer window.
Liverpool are in the market for a striker after losing Djibril Cisse for the season with a broken leg, and Spanish star Morientes has regularly been linked with a move to Anfield.
The Reds have not commented officially on their attempts to bring the Real Madrid ace to Merseyside, but the player himself is ready to dismiss interest from other clubs to join the Rafalution.
"Yes, I am going to England - I have decided," Morientes is reported to have told the Spanish press. "I will go to Liverpool and for many reasons. The main reason is the coach Rafa Benitez. He is Spanish and knows me perfectly, which is worth a lot for a professional.
"We have asked Real Madrid to make a fast solution and I don't want to expand any further, except to say I am already looking through the English dictionary."
The player's agent Gines Carvajal has admitted Morientes' future is now in the hands of Real Madrid, who will need to agree a fee for the player's sale.
"Everything depends on Real Madrid. I haven't seen anything in writing from Liverpool," said Carvajal.
"I know they spoke with Madrid and the initial amount did not satisfy the president.
"But within the right price frame the feelings of the player will be a priority. That is important."
