Liverpool's £7m outcast lined up for January exit

Published Add your comment

Liverpool outcast Iago Aspas could be offered a way out of Anfield after just a few months at the club.

According to the Daily Mirror,  La Liga outfit Valencia are keen on a loan move for the Spaniard who has endured a miserable time on Merseyside and is also reportedly facing the possibility of a hefty fine for allegedly breaking a contract with a former agent.

26-year-old Aspas, who joined Liverpool from Celta Vigo for a fee of approximately £7.2 million during the summer, has failed to settle in the Premier League, registering no goals and just one assist in seven top-flight appearances for Brendan Rodgers' men.

After struggling for both form and fitness, Aspas has made just four starts in all competitions and made his first appearance for the Reds since October with an extremely short cameo off the substitute's bench during Liverpool's emphatic 5-1 demolition of struggling Norwich City on Wednesday evening.

Aspas has already admitted that he has found it hard to acclimatise to being a substitute at Anfield after enjoying a regular role at his former club. 

Whether Rodgers will be content to see him leave Liverpool, however is open for debate. Although Aspas has hardly set the Premier League alight, it seems a little unfair to already categorise him as a failure after such a short, injury-ravaged stint on these shores.

However, if the former Swansea boss has no immediate use for him, a temporary January move could be the best solution for all parties.
