Malaga move for Liverpool’s Luis Alberto

Forward Luis Alberto is set for a season-long loan to Malaga after finding opportunities hard to come by at Anfield, reports The Daily Star.

It is reported that Malaga, who finished 11th in La Liga last season, have offered the Reds a loan fee of £1 million to bring the Spanish forward to the Andalusian coast for a year.

21-year-old Alberto began his career with Sevilla, and after a successful loan spell with Barcelona B earned a move to Anfield, with Liverpool paying £6.8 million for his services in the summer of 2013.

However, he was unable to break into the Liverpool first team last season, making single starts in the FA Cup and Capital One Cup, and just nine Premier League appearances, all as a substitute. He failed to score in any competition.

Things did not go well off the pitch for the young striker either, as he was convicted of drink-driving after an incident in March this year.

It is said though that Reds manager Brendan Rodgers does see a longer term future for Alberto at Anfield, and as such is more open to the idea of sending the Spanish starlet out on loan rather than a permanent transfer.
