Liverpool to sign Alberto Moreno in 20M euro deal?


Reports in Spain suggest Liverpool are set to shake hands with Sevilla for the services of left back Alberto Moreno.

According to several media reports in Spain, a deal could be announced as early as tomorrow - some suggesting that a Merseyside medical could await the 21 year old as early as the morning.

After the reds first summer purchase being a 32 year old - the recent additions of Cam and this planned deal are a return to the youth policy embraced by Fenway Sports Group.

The transfer fee is expected to be in the region of €20M (£16.2M) with a further £2M in add-ons depending on various footballing milestones.

If it goes through it will be a significant investment in a defender - especially one of such a young age.

Moreno, similar to Liverpool's current left back Jon Flanagan, was part of his country's 30 man 'pre-World Cup' squad - but did not make the final 23 to travel to Brazil.

Liverpool are hardly stretched in terms of numbers for defenders - however the future of both Glen Johnson and Jose Enrique are in some doubt at Anfield.  This potential signing will only increase speculation concerning those two.

Johnson's form has been temperamental at best - a word that could equally be applied to Jose Enrique's ability to avoid injury.

The Spanish press also report that Moreno, who turns 22 next month, will be offered a 5 year contract at Anfield.

    Don’t think Moreno is worth the money being offered,I guess only time will tell.I agree both Johnson and Enrique should be moved on this summer if possible,but I’m guessing we won’t get much from either ( Just like where being strong armed by Napoli over Reina,we should never deal with Italians again.Everytime we deal with them we get ripped off ( BIGTIME ) And Lallana isn’t worth £15.000.000 Million Pounds let alone £30.000.000 Million Pounds,I’d much rather we saved the money and start integrating Ibe into the first team.

      Got Coutinho from Inter for £8M. How is that getting ripped off? More like Liverpool robbed them. Sounds more like you’re just being racist.

        Its quite annoying when someone has an opinion (althought incorrect regarding coutinho – great spot/deal) and is then classed as a racist !! How ridiculous you are.
