Liverpool strikes deal

Thursday, August 14, 2014

CARDIFF - Liverpool have reached an agreement to sign Spanish left-back Alberto Moreno from Europa League champions Sevilla.

The 22-year-old was absent from the Sevilla squad for their 2-0 loss to Real Madrid in the UEFA Super Cup in Cardiff and Liverpool subsequently revealed that they had struck a deal to bring him to Anfield.

"Liverpool can confirm they have reached an agreement with Sevilla for the transfer of Spain international fullback Alberto Moreno," Liverpool said in a brief statement on their website yesterday.

"The Reds will proceed with the formalities of finalising the deal for the 22-year-old over the coming days and will make no further announcement until it is complete."

Liverpool did not confirm how much they have agreed to pay for Moreno, but British press reports put the transfer fee at around STG12 million ($F36million).

Speaking after his side's loss to Madrid at the Cardiff City Stadium, Sevilla coach Unai Emery said Moreno would leave with the club's blessing.
