Yossi Benayoun has claimed that he is attracting a lot of interest from rival Premiership clubs along with a few Spanish sides – but he wishes to remain at Anfield.

“This has been the best season of my career,” Benayoun told Israeli radio. “I have played a lot of games and scored some important goals, and I am very happy with that.”

He featured in forty-two games for the Reds this past season, scoring nine goals.

“At the moment, I am a Liverpool player, and unless something surprising happens, I will remain one. But after such a good season, I have had some offers from England and Spain.”

“You have to give that some consideration, so there will probably be some discussions with Liverpool.”

Benayoun accepts that he is not a first-choice at Anfield, but he is happy with his lot.

He added: “I have had a great two years at Anfield and enjoyed every minute. I have long since accepted that, with one or two notable exceptions, there is no such thing as an automatic choice at Liverpool.”

“Unless you are Steven Gerrard, you are going to sit out one or two games, but that is no problem. Stevie is exceptional, and the rest of us accept that.”

“The good thing is, I have been playing more, and I hope it continues that way. To be honest, it could be Real Madrid knocking on my door, and I would still rather stay at Liverpool four more years.”
