Is Simon Mignolet set to compete with Espanyol's Kiko Casilla for the number one spot? Reuters

Spanish keeper Kiko Casilla says he hasn't received a call from Liverpool over a possible transfer yet but admits that Espanyol are open to selling him to raise funds.

The Reds are believed to be in the market for a keeper to compete with Simon Mignolet for the number one spot after losing Pepe Reina, and reports have connected £8million-rated Casilla with a possible move to Anfield.

Espanyol are currently mid-table and after spending six years with the La Liga side Casilla says that the club would likely sell him if the price is right.

"I've not had a call from anyone at Liverpool yet," he told AS. "Espanyol are like most Spanish clubs – they need money – and if my departure happens, it's because Espanyol needs the money.

"When the bids happen, if it happens, we will value it and decide what happens."

Rodgers recently issued a public challenge to Mignolet to fight hard to stay the number one keeper for Liverpool, telling reporters: "He's our No1 keeper, he's got plenty experience. He just continues to work on that relationship with the back four and deal with that.

"The key thing, and the message to all the players in that situation, is make sure you are the front foot. Be aggressive, don't wait for it.

"He's a bit of a laid-back type of person in his personality. But I think he's aggressive."

Reports have also claimed that Liverpool are targeting Victor Valdes with some sources claiming the deal is almost done for him to move to Merseyside around Christmas time.

But the deal for the former Barcelona stopper, who is currently a free agent, has also faced a number of complications as they had disagreements over wages.
