Sevilla initially rejected any offers below their £16million asking price, but Liverpool chief executive Ian Ayre managed to negotiate a deal before the La Liga side’s UEFA Super Cup game against Real Madrid.

The Spaniard is now set to undergo a medical as well as discuss personal terms at Anfield this week.

“Liverpool can confirm they have reached an agreement with Sevilla for the transfer of Spain international full-back Alberto Moreno,” said a statement on Liverpool’s official website.

“The Reds will proceed with the formalities of finalising the deal for the 22-year-old over the coming days and will make no further announcement until it is complete.”

After the Super Cup game – which Real Madrid won 2-0 – Moreno was in a tearful state as he bid his farewells to his fans and his team-mates.

And his coach Unai Emery wishes Moreno well for the future, saying: “”We want to wish all the best to Alberto Moreno and we need to continue with our path.”
