Reds believe that a deal will happen shortly though.
Liverpool are said to be confident that their proposed £7.7 million capture of coveted Celta de Vigo front man Iago Aspas will still go ahead, despite the fact that the player flew back to Spain on Wednesday night with the transfer having not been finalised, says the Daily Mirror.
Both the Premier League club and the Liga outfit have already agreed a fee for the striker, who travelled to Merseyside on Tuesday to undergo a medical and discuss personal terms with the Reds.
However, although Aspas has successfully passed the former, there were still believed to be some issues surrounding the non payment of fees by his employers to the player’s agent and brother Jonathan, meaning that the 25-year-old flew home to Spain on Wednesday night still without an agreement in place with Liverpool.
That unexpected hiccup, though, is not thought to be putting the transfer of the forward, who netted 12 goals in his 36 matches in all competitions for his struggling club last season, in danger, with his agent saying: “There are no problems. Just a few bureaucratic issues that will be resolved.”
