According to the football transfer rumours in Spanish media, Sevilla are linked with shock Luis Alberto move.

Luis Alberto has played 68 times for Lazio since signing from Liverpool, scoring 15 goals and creating 25 assists.

He is 26-year-old and has his peak years ahead.

As a member of Spain national football team, Alberto won one cap.

His performances have seen him become the target of many European clubs including Sevilla.

The report claims that Sevilla manager has extensively scouted Luis Alberto and is considering a move for the attacking midfielder. Pablo Machín is a long term admirer of Alberto and believes he can get the most out of the Spain international.

Luis Alberto has the talent to play many roles in midfield and attack.

According to Football Espana, “Lazio winger and Spain international Luis Alberto has been linked with a return to Sevilla by reports in the Spanish press. The 26-year-old spent nine years at the Andalusian club rising through the youth ranks before joining Liverpool in the summer of 2013. He has since enjoyed loan stints at Malaga and Deportivo La Coruna before joining Lazio permanently in 2016, and a year later he earned his first full international cap for Spain. The winger posted a photo on his Instagram account of him dining in a well-known Seville restaurant alongside several sports agents, writing how nice it was to be back in the city. El Desmarque also reports Alberto met with Sevilla legend Pablo Blanco, who continues to work for the club and is close to current Director of Football Joaquin Caparros.”


Lazio are reluctant to let Luis Alberto go, but a big enough bid could persuade them to sell.

Stylistically, he would be a great fit in Sevilla.

Sevilla fans would certainly love to see him arrive at the club.
