Huge question marks now about whether Spaniard will be moving to the Premier League.
Prospective new Liverpool front man Iago Aspas will have to pay £4 million out of his own pocket in order to seal his dream move to Anfield this summer, according to reports in the Daily Mirror.
The young Celta de Vigo attacker had been expected to complete his protracted £7.7m transfer to the Reds this week after the player had flown to England to both undergo his medical and discuss personal terms with the Merseyside giants.
However, doubts then began to emerge about the deal taking place after Aspas flew back home to Spain on Tuesday with no official announcement having been made with regard his move to Liverpool.
It was then that it emerged that the 25-year-old, who scored 12 goals in his 36 appearances for the struggling Liga outfit last season, was involved in a financial dispute with his former agent, who has since requested the Spanish Football Federation withhold international clearance for the move to take place because of a dispute over his representation.
And, by all accounts the forward will now need to pay up to £4m in order to settle his wrangle with his one-time representative before he can seal his transfer to Anfield.
