Alberto Moreno set for Liverpool medical

Published Add your comment

Liverpool are closing in on a €22 million deal to sign Alberto Moreno with the highly rated Sevilla left-back set to undergo a Merseyside medical on Thursday.

Sport Witness cites reports from Spanish media outlet Estadio Deportivo who claim the Premier League club are eager to push through a transfer for the 21-year-old defender, amid growing interest in the player from a number of rival suitors.

Reds boss Brendan Rodgers has already completed the capture England international Rickie Lambert, and hopes to follow up the signing of the former Southampton striker by securing Moreno's signature by the end of the week.

Sevilla chairman Jose Castro Carmona confirmed Liverpool's interest in the Spanish full-back on Monday but played down speculation that a deal was close to being agreed, having knocked back a previous player-plus-cash offer that would've seen Suso pen a permanent deal at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan.

However, if the latest reports are to be believed, then the Anfield club have now successfully negotiated terms for the prospective transfer, and hope to have the deal completed imminently.

Iago Aspas is another name that has been mooted for a possible switch to Sevilla, but those negotiations are likely to happen separately to the Moreno deal, should Unai Emery retain an interest in the Liverpool outcast who failed to make any kind of impact during a disappointing debut season in England following a £7.7 million move from Celta Vigo last summer.
