Liverpool on-loan winger Luis Alberto, who is currently playing for La Liga side Deportivo La Coruna, has expressed his desire to work under new manager Jurgen Klopp.
The 23-year-old, who signed for the Reds from Sevilla in 2013 for a reported fee of £7 million, is having an impressive season in the Spanish league, where he has scored six goals in 27 appearances.
He also spent the previous season on loan with another La Liga side, Malaga, and scored two goals in 15 appearances for Los Boquerones.

While talking to the IBTimes UK, the Spain Under-21 international praised the influence of the former Dortmund manager, who according to him is transforming the club.
“He is transforming Liverpool,” said the 23-year-old. “When I was there, I could see that he has changed everything. You can feel it. Everything I heard about him was good.”
The former Barcelona B player, who spent one season on-loan at Camp Nou, making 38 appearances for the second string side of the Catalans, went further to express his excitement to work with 48-year-old, and also revealed that he is in contact with the managers staff.
“Of course, I am very excited to work under him,” he added. “I spoke a bit with Klopp, but during the whole season, I have been in contact with his staff to see how I am and to follow my evolution.
“Since the arrival of Klopp, the feeling has been positive, they have been in contact with me through one of his assistants and all we have spoken about has been positive.”
Liverpool brought in the former Borussia Dortmund manager in October last year, after former manager Brendan Rodgers was sacked following a poor start to the season.
Since then, the club has shown improvement in all departments by winning crucial away matches in the league against the likes of 2014/15 seasons champions Chelsea at Stamford Bridge and against Manchester City at Etihad Stadium.
The 18-time league champions also went on to qualify for the League Cup final, where they lost against Premier League rivals City on penalties.
However, after having a relatively disappointing season in the league, Jurgen Klopp's men are currently placed eighth in the table, and their only chance to qualify for the Champions League next season is by beating defending champions Sevilla in the Europa League final, which will take place on May 18 in Basel, Switzerland.
