Luis Alberto hails Liverpool move

Liverpool have completed the signing of Sevilla attacker Luis Alberto for an undisclosed fee.

The 20-year-old had been heavily linked with a move to the Premier League club, but the striker put pen-to-paper on a long-term deal on Saturday morning.

"I feel like I'm in a bubble at the moment," he told Liverpoolfc.com. "For me Liverpool is a top team. I feel like I am dreaming and I want to enjoy it to the full.

"I feel very excited, I've never felt so excited before but I'm very happy. I think I am the happiest man on earth.

"I was surprised [when Liverpool showed interest in me]. You never expect this to happen to you. But as the deal moved forward, I became very happy and I wanted to come to Liverpool.

"I have come here to enjoy moments with the supporters – and I know the supporters will help me to never walk alone.

"I hope that between us all we can make this club one of the greatest in the world, once again.

"I came to the club because of the manager," explained Alberto. "I came here because of the style of football he plays.

"I don't have a favourite position – it depends on the team's tactics really. I like to move about and I don't mind where I play.

"I like to play with freedom. I'm a technical player. I provide assists and in the penalty area I score goals."
