Alberto Moreno has emerged as a surprise target for Sevilla.
According to the football transfer rumours in Spanish media, Sevilla are linked with surprise move for Liverpool left-back Alberto Moreno.
The 26-year-old has been subject to interest from various European clubs.
The Spain international was signed by Liverpool in August 2014 from Sevilla for a fee of 18 million euros. The 26-year-old has a contract until 2019 with the club.
Moreno made 139 appearances across all competitions for Liverpool, scoring 3 goals and supplying 11 assists in return.
The 26-year-old is considered to be one of the best left-backs in Spain.
As a member of Spain national football team, Alberto Moreno won four caps.
Given that his contract is expiring in the summer and he has not yet signed an extension, the rumors have only heated up in recent weeks.
Pablo Machín is looking to shore up his defensive options and Liverpool’s Alberto Moreno happens to be a target. He is a long term admirer of Alberto Moreno and believes he can get the most out of the Spain international.
According to Football Espana (via ESPN FC) , “Sevilla are planning a deal to sign Liverpool full-back Alberto Moreno on a free transfer at the end of the season. The report states the player is keen on a return to Spain with the five-time Europa League winners top of the list as contract talks in England have stalled. Moreno has made just three Premier League appearances to date this campaign despite steering clear of injury, with Andrew Robertson firmly established as the club’s number one left-back.”
