Pedro Chirivella says he would like to leave Liverpool for a return to Spain in the January transfer window.
The midfielder has found little room in the Liverpool first team, with his biggest involvement in the headlines being when he was the ineligible player fielded in the Carabao Cup.
However, with his registration since completed, he was able to take to the field again in Liverpool’s dramatic win over Arsenal.
And Chiriviella says he is enjoying his time at Anfield – even if he would rather move on at the earliest opportunity.
“It is a privilege to be here,” he told Marca. “I am very happy with the opportunity they gave me [on Wednesday] and to see if with any luck I have some more in the next cup rounds to continue increasing minutes with the first team.
“I have had two or three windows where I was about to leave. Or that I get to leave, but that by other people’s circumstances I just can’t enjoy minutes where I want, which is in Spain.
“The same thing happened a little this summer; I was close to going to Spain again, but due to circumstances the club decided that I had to stay again.
“And I loved every time I had the opportunity. But you have to be realistic; the opportunities are not continuous due to the players at the club.
“Yes, I would like to find a solution in January and return to Spain. And if not, we would look next summer to return to Spain, definitely.”
