Liverpool, Man Utd target James Tarkowski confesses being United mad

Oldham Athletic defender James Tarkowski will be auditioning for a Premier League move today against FA Cup opponents Liverpool.

The Reds, along with Manchester United, Everton and Stoke City are all keen on the 21 year-old.

"I'm a United fan," he told the Daily Star Sunday. "Could I go to Liverpool? If the opportunity came about it's something I would have to look at.

"I want to play at the top level if I can. Hopefully that time will come at some point but right now I'm happy where I'm at.

"I'm just lucky I'm still ­playing now.

"My contract was up in the summer and I wasn't aware that I was going to be getting a new one. But the new manager, Lee Johnson, came in and they ­offered me something to make me stay.

"Before that, I didn't know which way it was going to go. I had to start thinking about how to carry on with my ­career.

"But I had no other plans - I wanted to stay in football and try to get to the top."
