Wigan Athletic boss Roberto Martinez is under consideration at Liverpool to succeed Kenny Dalglish.

The People says the Spaniard, who has guided Wigan away from near-certain relegation with a series of stunning results against Manchester United, Arsenal, Liverpool and Newcastle in recent weeks, has become one of the most sought-after young managers in European football.

Chelsea are known to be impressed by his development, West Brom see him as an ideal replacement for Roy Hodgson, and Aston Villa, snubbed last summer, are still keen.
