Moreno should be a Reds player in the coming days.
Sevilla left-back Alberto Moreno looks set to become a Liverpool player after the Spanish club’s £17.8m valuation of the youngster was met, according to Goal.
The Reds had an original bid of £16.2m plus winger Suso rejected by the Sevilla side, but it’s thought an improved offer is imminent.
Moreno has had a brilliant past 12 months at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium, helping the club to seventh in La Liga and Europa League triumph.
The performances of the 21-year-old earned a call up to Vicente del Bosque’s preliminary squad for the 2014 World Cup – although the defender didn’t make the final cut.
That development was actually a positive for the Merseysiders, as it meant negotiations didn’t have to be rushed in order to be completed before the tournament starts in June 12.
Moreno himself has spoken about a potential move and has admitted he is also unsure about what the situation is currently.
“My future? I do not know about that. That’s a matter for my father and my agent to deal with,” the starlet was quoted by Goal.
Brendan Rodgers is keen for recruitment on the left side of the back four due to a lack of options there currently, with Jose Enrique having been injured for much of 2013/14 and Aly Cissokho failing to impress during a loan spell from Valencia.
The Northern Irishman had thought about acquiring one of Chelsea duo Ashley Cole or Ryan Bertrand, but instead opted to spend more money and sign Moreno – who is expected to agree to a five-year deal upon his switch to Anfield.
