Liverpool close in on Alberto

Liverpool are reportedly on the verge of completing a deal for Sevilla’s Luis Alberto this summer, having agreed a contract with the forward.

Alberto, who spent last season on loan with Barcelona B, has been linked with the Premier League side in recent days.

Mundo Deportivo understand that an agreement has already been reached between the 20-year-old and the Reds on a four-year contract.

It is reported that Liverpool now only need to agree a price with Sevilla, whose Coach Unai Emery has hinted at using Alberto next year.

Sevilla are reportedly after €9m for the youngster, against an initial offer of €6.5m from Brendan Rodgers’ side.
