Sevilla defender Alberto Moreno has dismissed reports that he has agreed to move to Liverpool…
In a surprising twist in the tale, Spanish international left-back Alberto Moreno has reportedly denied claims that he has agreed a massive £18 million deal to join Liverpool, reports the Daily Star.
The 21-year old Sevilla man is hot property on the transfer market after setting La Liga alight this past season, and is also being tracked Tottenham and Real Madrid.
Some media reports suggested that Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers had been close to signing one of the finest prospects in Europe but Moreno insists that he has no intentions to leave at the moment.
Speaking about rumours surrounding his future, the attack-minded left-back said, “All I know is that I’ve been a Sevillista since I was a kid. My future? I do not know about that. That’s a matter for my father and my agent to deal with. I have four years I am dedicated to play and I’m happy here.”
The Daily Star reports that Moreno’s comments come as a big boost to Spurs, who still believe that they could sign the highly rated defender, but lack of Champions League football at White Hart Lane, means that the Lilywhites too may struggle in their quest.
Moreno has also been linked with a move to Spanish giants Real Madrid, who too are in search of a new left-back.
