The Red signed the attacking midfielder in summer 2013 following an affluent loan campaign at Barcelona B, notching up eleven goals in 38 league appearances.
But the 23-year-old struggled to hit the heights expected in the Premier League, managing just twelve appearances and finding himself loaned out to Malaga and Deportivo during the last two seasons respectively.
According to The Liverpool Echo, Alberto’s form for the latter club, claiming six goals and seven assists this term, has impressed Anfield gaffer Jurgen Klopp.
However, the Merseysiders are still open to selling the youngster and would cash-in if they receive an offer matching their £4.6million valuation, with Deportivo, Villarreal and former employers Sevilla reportedly keen.
But if no such offer arrives, Klopp is prepared to give the former Spain U21 the chance to earn a spot in his plans for next season.
