Aspas after January loan

Former Celta Vigo striker Iago Aspas is reportedly looking to leave Liverpool in the January transfer window on loan.

The Anfield outfit only picked up the 26-year-old from Celta in the summer for a fee in the region of €9m, but Deportes 7 Valencia have suggested this week he is planning an early exit.

Whilst recently ruled out for five weeks with a thigh injury, it is speculated that the player is after the move to guarantee regular first-team football.

On from a promising start to his career in England and ahead of the injury, Aspas had dropped to the bench under Brendan Rodgers and from six appearances for Liverpool yet to has a goal to his name.

Aspas’ debut season in La Liga last year saw him attract a number of admirers, with Reading and Chelsea linked last January, and Valencia believed at one stage to have wrapped up a deal.

The forward did comment just a week before picking up his injury that he was finding it ‘hard to get a game’ at the club.
