Liverpool target Alberto Moreno has denied reports that he has agreed to move to Merseyside this summer.
Goal.com are reporting that the Sevilla left-back has left his future open, but has quietened talks that he has put pen to paper on a deal to move to Anfield:
“All I know is that I’ve been a Sevillista since I was a kid. My future? I do not know about that,” said the defender.
“That’s a matter for my father and my agent to deal with. I have four years [left on my contract], I am dedicated to playing [here] and I’m happy.”
Reports have suggested that the Reds have been told to pay £17.8million for the highly-rated 21-year-old, after having their initial bid rejected by Sevilla. The Europa League winners are keen to keep the left-back, who is a promising talent in Spain. Liverpool are expected to strengthen their defence this summer, after the club missed out on the Premier League trophy last season.
Rodgers had been hoping to bring Moreno in with Emre Can, who is expected to move to Anfield this summer too, after the club agreed a deal in principle with Bayer Leverkusen. But Moreno’s happiness to stay at Sevilla may just change the Northern Irishman’s plans in the transfer window.
