Liverpool target Alessio Cerci has stated that he will not be moving during the January transfer window but admitted he could be open to a switch at the end of the season, reports Nadia Carminati of Sky Sports.

Should there be an offer we (myself and my agent) will evaluate it. I don't promise never-ending love to a club. In the future, I could leave.

Torino winger Cerci has been in fine form this season, with the 26-year-old scoring nine times in 19 games, with seven assists to his name, ESPN stats show.

The Italy international has caught the eye of Liverpool, reports Nick Lustig of the Daily Staras well as Manchester United and Arsenal. Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has said he is happy to wait until the summer "if the right deals can't be done," according to the Liverpool Echo, leaving the door open for a move for Cerci.

After Torino's 0-0 draw against Fiorentina on Sunday, Cerci told Sky Italia, via Sky Sports: "In January I will 100% stay, I'm concentrating on this jersey and supporters."

However, Liverpool will face competition for the striker's signature as Juventus are also said to be monitoring the situation.

Cerci was also asked about the link to Juventus in the post-match interview but denied that a move is on the cards via forzaitalianfootball.com:

These are difficult questions to answer. I am a professional and don’t know of any real interest from Juventus and I have not heard from any other club either.

But Sky Sports reports that the striker, who is hoping to be in Italy's World Cup squad, has admitted that the situation could change in the summer, adding: "In June it will be different."
