Liverpool defender Alvaro Arbeloa has admitted he would consider a return to Spain as speculation mounts that Glen Johnson is on is way to Anfield.
The 26-year-old Spain international has been linked with a return to former club Real Madrid, with Portsmouth right-back Johnson tipped for a £17million switch to Merseyside.
Arbeloa, currently on international duty at the Confederations Cup, said: 'I am happy at Liverpool, but I have something to prove in Spain as I did not show my best form in La Liga. One day, I'm sure I will return.
'It is always nice to be linked to big teams - even to this Madrid side in a time of transition. They are working hard to build a great team.
'I have one more year remaining on my Liverpool deal, but anything can happen.
'A contract renewal is in the air. I am contracted for one more year, but if Liverpool get an offer, they will consider it. It is all in the hands of my agent.'
