Liverpool star lined up for switch to Premier League rivals

Iago Aspas could see his miserable Liverpool career ended after just a matter of months, with reports suggesting that a fellow Premier League club are interested in his signature ahead of the January transfer window.

According to The Sun, Swansea City are eyeing a move for the Spaniard, with Michu and Nathan Dyer currently sidelined through injury.

Aspas only joined Liverpool from La Liga outfit Celta Vigo for a fee of £7 million during the summer, but his time at Anfield to date has not been successful.

With his start to the season having been disrupted by a torn thigh muscle suffered in training, the 26-year-old has gone on to make just nine appearances for Brendan Rodgers' side in the Premier League - with the last coming with an eight-minute substitute cameo during the 2-1 defeat to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

Despite Liverpool suffering somewhat of a midfield injury crisis at present, it seems unlikely that Rodgers will call upon Aspas as an adequate short-term replacement for the likes of Steven Gerrard and Joe Allen in an advanced position.

This is not the first occasion Aspas' name has been mentioned in connection with Swansea.

Spanish international Michu, who has been at the Liberty Stadium since moving from Rayo Vallecano last summer, spoke of his desire to see Aspas join the club on loan earlier this month.
