While most Liverpool fans are preoccupied with what is going on regarding players coming into their club, the club itself is trying to negotiate a player leaving.
The man in question happens to be Luis Alberto, who spent last season on loan at Deportivo La Coruña, where he scored six goals and picked up eight assists in 31 appearances for the Liga BBVA club.
However, Deportivo aren’t the ones interested in prising him away from Liverpool on a permanent basis, as Sevilla, according to El Desmarque, want to bring him home.
The 23-year-old was bought from that very club for £6.8m back in 2013 for Liverpool by Brendan Rodgers, but he never managed to breakthrough.
Loans to Malaga and the aforementioned Deportivo ensued, and now Sevilla are interested in a permanent move for this summer.
El Desmarque say Monchi is working hard on the deal, where Liverpool are asking for around €8m (£6.81m), which is pretty much exactly what they bought him for in the first place.
If the price is met, there will be very reluctance from the Merseyside club to see him go as Jürgen Klopp has made it clear in pre-season that he wouldn’t be counting on the attacking midfielder.
Considering the player’s contract runs out in 2017, the price seems a little bit steep, and we wouldn’t be surprised if that went down a bit, especially if Monchi has anything to do with it.
