Alberto Moreno will become Liverpool’s eighth summer signing when he completes his medical at the club on Thursday.
The Spanish left-back will finalise a £12 million move from Sevilla and was at Melwood, Liverpool’s training ground, on Wednesday.
The 22-year-old is quoted commenting on the move, which sees him depart his boyhood club.
“Liverpool are a great team and of course I’m super-motivated. I hope things go well,” Moreno is quoted in The Liverpool Echo.
“I am living a strange situation because I’m leaving the club of my life.”
Moreno was pictured in tears after Sevilla’s European Super Cup Final against Real Madrid on Tuesday night, clearly emotional at leaving the club and his team mates. He commented:
“I have many feelings together. What happened on the pitch, with the fans, will remain forever etched on me and I could not help but mourn because I did not expect it.
“First came the parting with colleagues, then with the fans… all very complicated.”
