After weeks of no news regarding Sevilla left-back Alberto Moreno it now appears that a deal for the Spanish international is back on despite Sevilla’s sporting director describing the deal as being “paralysed.”
According to the Daily Express reports coming out of Spain say that Liverpool managing director Ian Ayre personally flew to Spain to visit with Moreno’s representatives in order to push through the £18 million deal.
The 22-year-old defender would represent Liverpool’s fourth summer signing with manager Brendan Rodgers always saying that a left-back was in his mind a main priority after Aly Cissokho failed to live up to expectations.
The signing of Moreno will now allow Jon Flanagan to move to his preferred right-back position in the Reds defence.
In other related news it would appear that Liverpool striker Iago Aspas is set to join Sevilla on a season long loan even though Liverpool would be prepared to make it permanent should they be able to recoup the majority of the £8 million they paid to Celta Vigo a year ago for the 26-year-old Spanish striker.
Aspas struggled from the get go on Merseyside only managing to score once in 15 appearances for the club, and now appears set to return home.
