Alberto Moreno has remained coy on his future amid reports that he is on the verge of joining Liverpool.

Speculation emanating from Moreno's native Spain yesterday had suggested that the 21-year-old Sevilla defender had agreed a five-year deal to move to Anfield for a fee of around £18 million, with the Premier League runners-up having been in pursuit of the player for a number of weeks.

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers' need to recruit a new high-quality left-back is certainly no secret, with Jose Enrique - Moreno's compatriot - having missed several months of the club's otherwise impressive and feelgood 2013/14 campaign in which they transformed their reputation as potential Champions League qualification contenders into fully-fledged title candidates.

While some Liverpool fans may have been hoping that Valencia loanee Aly Cissokho would be able to successfully fill the void left by Enrique's unfortunate absence with a knee problem, the Frenchman made little impact on Merseyside and has seemingly not been offered the opportunity to extend his stay with the club.

However, while a deal for Moreno appears to be all but done according to the latest gossip, Moreno insists that he is unaware of what is happening with his future and also says he is content and committed at the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán.

"All I know is that I've been a Sevillista since I was a kid. My future? I do not know about that," he was quoted by Goal.

That's a matter for my father and my agent to deal with. I have four years [left on my contract], I am dedicated to play and I'm happy here."

Such comments would appear to suggest that Moreno - who sadly just missed out on a place in Vicente del Bosque's final 23-man Spain squad for this summer's World Cup - would not be too disheartened if he were to remain with his current employers, something that could provide a source of momentary comfort for fellow Sevillistas with news breaking earlier today that star playmaker Ivan Rakitic looks set to join rivals Barcelona.
