Aimar pleads for Liverpool switch

Aimar was a key player for Rafael Benitez when they were at Valencia
Valencia midfielder Pablo Aimar wants to move to England and join former boss Rafael Benitez at Liverpool.

Argentine international Aimar, 25, is not a regular in the Valencia side under Claudio Ranieri, the former Chelsea manager.

The midfielder told the Daily Star: "This season I'm not happy at Valencia.

"Rafa Benitez is an excellent coach who knows me very well and Liverpool would be an ideal place to go if I cannot sort out my future here."

Last season Aimar was part of the Valencia side that won both the Spanish league title and the Uefa Cup.

The Argentine added: "I do not understand why I have not been playing. Ranieri has not told me the reasons but I am obviously not part of his plans.

"From what I can see, English football is the best in Europe next to Spain and I do not think I would have a problem adapting to the Premiership."
