The Spain striker will be unveiled at Liverpool on Wednesday afternoon with the Reds having completed his transfer from his beloved Atletico Madrid for a fee believed to be £26.5million.
In his last press conference at the Vicente Calderon, the 23-year-old said: "It has been a difficult decision to leave my all-time club. But it would have been hard for me to reject Liverpool´s offer. It is a big leap for me and I think it was the right thing for everyone. It´s one of the best, if not the best, clubs in Europe."
