Liverpool remain confident of completing a deal for Iago Aspas from Celta Vigo despite the signing being blocked by the Spanish FA.
Liverpool have already announced their confidence of completing a deal for Celta Vigo forward Iago Aspas on their official website, but the signing is being blocked by the Spanish FA.
Reds managing director Ian Ayre has reportedly been dealing with unauthorised agents, according to the Daily Mirror, even after he found out that he was not speaking to the player’s official FIFA-licensed representatives.
Aspas is contractually represented by Carmelo Vicente and Jorge Santome until 2014, but the Spaniard attempted to push through his Anfield switch by hiring PromoEsport, a company based in Barcelona.
As a result of their fury with Ayre, Liverpool and PromoEsport, Celta Vigo and the Spanish FA have not yet sent over the player’s International Transfer Certificate.
Liverpool remain confident of concluding a deal for the 25 year-old, who scored 12 goals in La Liga from 34 appearances last season in his only season in the Spanish top flight.
However, they may need to appease his country’s FA and Celta Vigo if the transfer is to go through.
