Liverpool have finally agreed a deal with Spanish side Sevilla for the transfer of long term target Alberto Moreno, according to Sky Sports, with a fee of £12m being paid.

Manager Brendan Rodgers identified a left back as one of his priority signings over the course of the summer and has courted Moreno for some time, with Sevilla stating he would not be leaving for any less than the €20m they wanted.

However despite Sevilla boss Unai Emery insisting the 22-year-old would face Real Madrid in the UEFA Super Cup fixture in Cardiff, Liverpool chief executive Ian Ayre struck a deal ahead of the tie in Cardiff and the defender was subsequently withdrawn from the side.

The Reds will now discuss personal terms with Moreno and the player will undergo a medical ahead of the switch that is now expected to be completed within the next few days.

A statement in the club’s official website said: “Liverpool can confirm they have reached an agreement with Sevilla for the transfer of Spain international full-back Alberto Moreno.

“The Reds will proceed with the formalities of finalising the deal for the 22-year-old over the coming days.”

The club then stated no more would be said on the transfer until it was officially completed.

Moreno could be seen crying on the pitch following the Super Cup game as Sevilla players and staff bid an emotional fair well to the player, who has come through the ranks at his hometown club.
