Alberto Moreno is set to become Liverpool’s eighth signing of the summer, after the club finally agreed a £12million deal with Sevilla for the left back.
The 22-year-old is scheduled for a medical at Melwood tomorrow, having been pulled out of the Sevilla side to fact Real Madrid in the UEFA Super Cup Final in Cardiff last night.
The Reds have been chasing the Spanish international all summer, and appear to have finally landed their man after extensive negotiations with the Europa League winners.
“I am living a strange situation because I’m leaving the club of my life,” Moreno told ABC de Sevilla. “I was always aware of the two teams (trying) to agree. I never got into that but Sevilla have understood that Liverpool’s offer was good and I am going.
“(I have) many feelings together. What happened on the pitch, with the fans, will remain forever etched on me and I could not help but mourn (his departure) because I did not expect it.
“First came the parting with colleagues, then with the fans…all very complicated. Liverpool are a great team and of course I’m super-motivated. I hope things go well.”
